One of Gotham‘s most infamous wrongdoers will soon be showing his face — both of his faces, actually — on the Fox drama.
Nicholas D’Agosto (Masters of Sex) has nabbed the recurring role of Harvey Dent, the idealistic Assistant District Attorney destined to become the villainous Two-Face, TVLine has learned. Gotham‘s Dent is described as “handsome, warm and engaging,” constantly maintaining a sunny disposition even when dealing with the city’s seediest riffraff.
D’Agosto’s Gotham deal includes a series regular option in event of a potential second season. In addition to playing Dr. Ethan Haas on Showtime’s Sex, D’Agosto has recurred on Heroes and The Office, among other shows. He was also a lead on How I Met Your Dad, the HIMYM spin-off that never made it to air.
