What If FOX Cast new Batman series 'Gotham' with more 'O.C.' cast members?

Try using the arrow keys

First, let's acknowledge how incredibly great it is that this O.C. alum is returning to FOX. And how fitting it is that Ben McKenzie starring in its new Batman origin series, Gotham , on the very same network that served as the origin of his broody, wife-beater-wearing fame with The O.C.

Now that we're done with that — McKenzie's pre-comissioner Detective James Gordon just got some new neighbors in Gotham City. According to E! News, it's been announced that iconic Batman villain The Penguin (or Oswald Cobblepot), beloved confidant Alfred Pennyworth, Gordon's future wife Barbara Kean, and Gordon's boss Captain Essen have all been cast. The roles will be played by The Walking Dead's Robin Lord Taylor, Sean Pertwee, Being Human's Erin Richards, and Burn Notice's Zabryna Guevara respectively. And so the "operatic soap" has begun to take shape.

There's yet to be an announcement of who will play young Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle (Catwoman). Which obviously got us thinking — what is FOX cast Gotham as if it were the O.C. reunion we desperately wish we got for it's 10-year anniversary?
