Cory Michael Smith Gotham RiddlerCory Michael Smith has joined the cast of Gotham as Edward Nygma, the DC Comics character destined to become future supervillain The Riddler. In the prequel drama from Fox and WBTV, Nygma is a brilliant but socially awkward forensic scientist who’s eccentric and outgoing and desperate to be liked. Smith has a guest role in the pilot and might become a series regular on the hourlong drama exec produced by Bruno Heller, which stars Ben McKenzie as young Gotham City cop James Gordon. Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith, Zabryna Guevara, Sean Pertwee, Robin Lord Taylor, Erin Richards, David Mazouz, and Camren Bicondova also star. Smith is coming off of HBO miniseries Olive Kitteridge with Frances McDormand and turns in Todd Haynes’ Carol, opposite Cate Blanchett, and Camp X-Ray with Kristen Stewart.
