Ben McKenzie Talks ‘Gotham’ in this Google+ Hangout

The Batman prequel television series Gotham has been a major hit since it debuted last September — so popular that fans collectively groaned when the series wrapped up its initial ten-episode run back in November. Shortly after that run wrapped, star Ben McKenzie, who plays the young Jim Gordon, participated in a Gold Derby Google+ Hangout with Gold Derby editor Matt Noble.

In the above video, McKenzie speaks about his appreciation for the Batman universe, what it feels like to portray an outsider character like Gordon, and dealing with the massive hype surrounding the series. Check it out as you wait for the return of the series tonight on Fox!
