Deadline provides this description for Collins’ latest role:
Dashing with a swagger, Collins’ Harvey Dent is Gotham’s charismatic, hard-charging District Attorney. With a rigid sense of right and wrong, Harvey’s idealism and single-minded quest for justice will ironically and tragically transform him into one of Gotham’s most feared supervillains, Two-Face.
Collins joins previously announced series regulars Fallon Smythe, Tyler DiChiara, Oscar Morgan, Olivia Rose Keegan and Navia Robinson.
Batwoman‘s Natalie Abrams, Chad Fiveash and James Stoteraux pen Gotham Knights, which derives inspiration from the video game of the same name and takes place after Bruce Wayne’s demise. Wayne’s adopted son establishes an alliance with the kids of Batman’s foes after the city pins his murder on them. These misfits fight tooth and nail to clear their names in a Gotham sans a Caped Crusader. Eventually, the group rises to claim its destiny as the new heroes of Gotham — the Gotham Knights.
Misha Collins is most known for portraying the angel Castiel on The CW’s long-running Supernatural, which ended on November 12, 2020, after 15 years on TV. Collins made his debut on the popular genre series in the Season 4 premiere, “Lazarus Rising,” on September 18, 2008.
His other credits include a recurring role on 24, Girl, Interrupted, the original Charmed series, ER and podcast The Angel of Vine. Collins recently starred in Bridgewater, a podcast thriller, as Jeremy Bradshaw. He’s also the co-founder and board president of Random Acts. In 2011, Collins founded the Greatest International Scavenger Hunt the World Has Ever Seen (GISHWHES), with proceeds going toward Random Acts. GISHWHES broke the world record for most pledges to dole out a random act of kindness in 2012.
I’m excited about this casting! Bring it on! Collins is a talented performer with plenty of genre work under his belt.
