‘Gotham’ Reveals First Look at Paul Reubens as Penguin’s Dad (Photo)

Executive producer Danny Cannon tweets image of Actor appearing on Fox series decades after role in “Batman Returns”


Paul Reubens is back in Gotham City.

Danny Cannon, executive producer of Fox drama “Gotham,” tweeted a first-look photo Tuesday of Paul Reubens in his role as the father of Oswald Cobblepot’s — a.k.a. the Penguin’s.

The Pee Wee Herman actor is seen in the photo alongside Robin Lord Taylor, who plays the Penguin in the television series.

Reubens also played the elder Cobblepot in the 1992 film “Batman Returns,” directed by Tim Burton. In the movie, Danny DeVito played the Penguin. Reubens appeared in a flashback sequence at the beginning of the film, showing DeVito’s character as a baby.

Taylor revealed at New York Comic con in October that Reubens would be reprising the role.

“Gotham” will return from midseason hiatus Feb. 29 on Fox.
