Shea Whigam teases his Joker character. Warner Bros. deals a heavy blow to its Six Billion Dollar Man reboot. Syfy has plans for Killer Klowns from Outer Space and Critters. Plus, new looks at Mary Poppins Returns and Legends of Tomorrow’s next episode, and Netflix adds a creepy Australian mermaid show to its roster. Spoilers now!
In a recent interview with Collider, Shea Whigham revealed he and co-star Bill Camp play Gotham City police detectives.
I’ll say this, Bill Camp, from The Night Of, is one of our great actors. He’s finally getting his due. He and I play two cops from Gotham P.D., in 1981 when the city was tough. We’re investigating something that’s just happened, at the start of the piece. We’re trying to get to the bottom of it, and it leads to where it leads to. You know, it’s rare that I’ve been on a set where it feels like it crackles. It’s pretty amazing… I want to have an experience. I don’t call it a job. I don’t say that I have a job. I have a gig, or a piece, or a film, or a show, but it’s never a job… We’re having an experience on Joker.
Killer Klowns from Outer Space/Critters
