BATMAN RETURNS' Danny DeVito Comments On GOTHAM's Penguin

Access Hollywood interviewed Danny DeVito ("Always Sunny In Philadelphia") and wanted to know what he thinks of Robin Lord Taylor's portrayal of Oswald Cobblepot, aka The Penguin on Fox's Gotham. Hit the jump to check it out.


Robin Lord Taylor's Oswald Cobblepot (aka The Penguin) may not be short and stout with flippers for hands like Danny DeVito's Penguin in Tim Burton's 1992 superhero film Batman Returns, but that hasn't stopped Taylor from becoming Gotham's breakout star. In past interviews Taylor had expressed being intimidated about taking on a role that was played so well by Danny DeVito and Burgess Meredith in the 1960s Batman television series. I'm sure he won't feel as intimidated when he hears what DeVito thinks of him. "I've watched the show. I think he's a very good young Penguin," DeVito said. "He's a terrific actor."

We've seen actors that portrayed comic book characters on film or on past TV shows reappear on Smallville and The Flash, but would Danny DeVito be interested in returning to Gotham? "I don't know about that," DeVito told Access Hollywood. "Again, it's all about the schedules and the parts and like how the thing is written and what it would be and there are so many particulars."


Based upon characters published by DC Entertainment and produced by Warner Bros. Television, GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. Starring Ben McKenzie ("Southland," "The O.C."), Donal Logue ("Sons of Anarchy," "Terriers," "Vikings," "Copper") and Jada Pinkett Smith ("The Matrix" films, "HawthoRNe"), GOTHAM follows one cop's rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time. Executive producer Bruno Heller ("The Mentalist") wrote the pilot, which was directed and executive-produced by Emmy Award nominee Danny Cannon (the "CSI" franchise, "Nikita"). John Stephens will serve as an executive producer on the series.
