Michael Chiklis is heading to GOTHAM, a rep for the show has confirmed.

Chiklis — who will be a series regular — will play Captain Nathaniel Barnes in the show’s upcoming second season.

“[Barnes] lands on the GCPD like a tornado, ripping out the dead wood of Gotham’s police force,” the GOTHAM producers told TVLine, which was first to report Chiklis’ casting. “He is a law and order zealot; unafraid of making enemies – on either side of the law. For Gordon (Ben McKenzie), Barnes is a hero and a mentor, someone with whom he can share the burden of heroism. Captain Barnes proves himself to be a strong ally to Gordon… but one day he will make an equally powerful enemy.”
