At long last, "Gotham" has found its Batman-in-the-making — and the actor certainly has the "Touch." David Mazouz, the young actor best known for playing the gifted Jake Bohm on Fox's short-lived "Touch," will bring Bruce Wayne to life on "Gotham," Fox's upcoming exploration of the DC Comics universe. The series is said to focus largely on future commissioner James Gordon as a beat detective and Gotham City newbie, while Mazouz's Bruce mourns his parents' ...

The upcoming "Gotham" TV series, which will tell the origin stories of Jim Gordon and Batman, has just announced that 13-year-old David Mazouz ("Touch") has been cast as Bruce Wayne and "America's Best Dance Crew" dancer Camren Bicondova has been cast as Selina Kyle (aka Catwoman). The two actors join Ben McKenzie as Jim Gordon, Sean Perwee as Alfred and Jada Pinkett-Smith as a crime boss, Donal Logue as Detective Harvey Bullock and Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepott (aka The Penguin). "Gotham" starts with the murder of Bruce Wayne's parents. From there, the show will focus on Gordon and his criminal cases, and end with Bruce becoming Batman. »
Warner Bros. TV, which is producing the series, carefully points out that Mazouz will not, at any point in the series, become Batman.
Another casting choice announced today is newcomer Camren Bicondova ("Battlefield America") in the role of a young Selena Kyle, an orphan street thief and pickpocket who will eventually become Catwoman.
Bicondova is part of the Hawaiian all-female dance crew 8 Flavahz so her physical dexterity will likely come into play in the role.

Young Master Wayne and Selina Kyle, Aka Catwoman, have been chosen for Fox’s Batman prequel, Gotham. David Mazouz will play the tragedy-stricken Bruce, shortly after the murder of his parents and now under the care of Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee). Mazouz is best known for his role in Fox’s short-lived, Ascap Award-winning sci-fi series Touch alongside Keifer Sutherland and Danny Glover. That show managed two seasons before being cancelled. Portraying pre-Catwoman Selina will be Camren Bicondova, a relative newcomer to Hollywood, whose major claim to fame is being a runner-up on MTV’s America’s Best Dance Crew with her group, 8 Flavahs. She has also appeared in small roles in the horror flick Girlhouse and Cinedigm’s dance drama Battlefield America. Bicondova’s role as Selina will be as another orphaned teenager, well on her way to master thief as an expert pickpocket living on the streets of Gotham. With »

Fox’s Jim Gordon-centric series Gotham is shaping up fast and moving swiftly toward its fall 2014 premiere. Several major roles were cast last month, including Gordon himself, his partner Harvey Bullock, the Penguin, Alfred and the Penguin’s boss Fish Mooney. That left one major part left to be filled: the young Dark Knight himself, Bruce Wayne. Now we not only have a young actor to step into the role of the future Batman, but have also learnt that the future Catwoman, Selina Kyle, has been cast as well.
Gotham will begin with the murder of Bruce’s parents and from there focus on a young Jim Gordon, a detective new to Gotham city. Various reports have mentioned that Bruce will be »

So far, the new Fox TV take on the Batman universe, Gotham – which rolls the clock back to the early days of Commissioner Gordon, Bruce Wayne and the rest – has focused on the casting of the older characters. We now know who will be playing the young Bruce Wayne and a teenage Selina “future Catwoman” Kyle, with David Mazouz and newcomer Camren Bicondova joining the cast.Gotham’s main story will be that of Gordon (Ben McKenzie), here a rookie detective looking to make his mark on the crime-ridden city and facing the nascent versions of the Batman supervillains we’ll come to know in the future: Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald “not yet the Penguin” Cobblepot among them. Also aboard are Donal Logue as detective Harvey Bullock, Zabryna Guevara as Captain Essen (Gordon’s boss), Erin Richards as our hero’s fiancée and Jada Pinkett Smith as Cobblepot’s tough gangster overseer. »
And it’s Jack Bauer’s kid from Touch. Maybe you didn’t watch Touch, in which case: good for you, my friend. TV shows about how everyone is connected by a seemingly random series of events never work out well (remember Jj Abrams’ 6 Degrees?). Anyway, I watched Touch. At the center of Touch was a maybe-autistic boy played by David Mazouz.
Mazouz was fine, I guess, he didn’t get many lines and playing maybe-autistic isn’t an indication on how he’ll do as the longest-running young Bruce Wayne or almost Batman (usually relegated to flashbacks at this age).
Mazouz is the last regular to be added to the Gotham cast with Sean Pertwee as Aflred Pennyworth, Ben McKenzie as Detective Gordon and Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, who will be Bruce’s age or something.
Not to mention Jada Pinkett Smith…or really to mention how strange this all seems. »
We’re pleased to announce the casting of the final two series regular roles — Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle — in the Fox/Wbtv drama project Gotham, which has a series commitment at the network.
· David Mazouz (Touch) has been cast as the preteen Bruce Wayne, sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents. Serious and soulful, young Bruce relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and James Gordon.
(Note: As has been reported previously, Gotham is the origin story of Commissioner James Gordon and not a “Batman” show. Please note for stories that David is playing the young Bruce Wayne — not Batman.)
· Acting newcomer Camren Bicondova has been cast as Selina Kyle, a teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A street thief and skilled pickpocket, she’s dangerous when cornered.

That lovely sound you hear is the final piece of Fox‘s Gotham casting puzzle falling neatly into place. Gotham, as we’ve been telling you, is an upcoming Batman origin series, focusing primarily on Commissioner Gordon back when he was Detective Gordon, the evil villains were getting their start, and Bruce Wayne was a preteen.
Today Deadline broke the news that David Mazouz, who played the lead character in Fox‘s Touch, and who is now 12, has been cast to play 12-year-old Bruce Wayne. He had reportedly entered a talent deal with Fox after the cancellation of Touch last May, and had been penciled in to play Bruce by Warner Bros. Television Studios early on.
So now we have it: Detective Gordon (Ben McKenzie), his wizened partner Detective Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), their boss Captain Essen (Zabryna Guevara), loyal Wayne family retainer and young Bruce protector Alfred (Sean Pertwee »

Casting continues on Fox’s highly anticipated drama series Gotham, as the all-important roles of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle have been filled. The series’ main focus is an origin story of Commissioner James Gordon (to be played by Ben McKenzie), but it will feature a young Bruce Wayne in a series regular supporting role. The network announced today that Touch actor David Mazouz will be playing a preteen Wayne, but the press release stresses the fact that Mazouz is playing a young Bruce Wayne and not Batman—it sounds like the Caped Crusader is unlikely to make an official appearance on the series; at least not in the near future. The official description of the Wayne character is as follows: David Mazouz (Touch) has been cast as the preteen Bruce Wayne, sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents. Serious and soulful, young Bruce »

Fox's "Gotham" keeps looking better and better, as more cast members are announced. Producer Warner Bros. TV has named the actors who will portray young versions of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, before they become Batman and Catwoman.
David Mazouz, the 13-year-old former star of "Touch," will play Bruce Wayne as a preteen, "sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents. Serious and soulful, young Bruce relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and James Gordon."
Selina Kyle will be played by Camren Bicondova. The character is described as "a teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable. A street thief and skilled pickpocket, she's dangerous when cornered." What's interesting about Bicondova is she's got a bit of a young Michelle Pfeiffer look going on. Pfeiffer, of course, played arguably the best Catwoman in "Batman Returns."
Mazouz and Bicondova are the last two series regulars for "Gotham, »
Variety gave a description of the character, saying that he's a "boy who leans on his butler Alfred and Commissioner James Gordon for guidance after his wealthy parents are murdered." Just a reminder, Mazouz will not become Batman in the series. That's something that won't happen until later down the line.
They've also cast Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle, described as "a teenage orphan and street thief who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable." As you all know, she eventually grows up to be Catwoman.
The series focuses on a young Jim Gordon and his adventures in law enforcement as he witnesses the rise of Gotham's villains whom Batman will later encounter.

We know that there were only a couple of major roles left to be cast in Gotham, and now the series which focuses on a young Detective Jim Gordon has found both Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle. Both characters will be considerably more youthful than their comic book counterparts, something which is to be expected as Gotham takes place years before Wayne becomes Batman.
Twelve year old Touch star David Mazouz is set to play Bruce Wayne, the son of Thomas and Martha Wayne. He’s sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic slayings of his wealthy parents and is described as serious and soulful, relying on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth and James Gordon.

Not exactly. David Mazouz has been cast as the preteen Bruce Wayne in Fox’s Batman prequel series Gotham. The 13-year-old actor will depict Wayne after his wealthy parents are killed, but before he dons the cape and cowl (which won’t happen until the show’s final episode). Mazouz previously co-starred with Kiefer Sutherland on Fox’s Touch.
Mazouz has been cast along with newcomer Camren Bicondova (photo below), who will play a teenage Selina Kyle (aka not-yet-Catwoman). Her character is described as a “teenage orphan who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable; a street thief and skilled pickpocket, »

There’s a new budding millionaire bachelor in Gotham City. Warner Bros. TV has tapped “Touch” alum David Mazouz for the role of a pre-teen Bruce Wayne in “Gotham,” the studio’s Batman origins drama for Fox.
Mazouz will play boy who leans on his butler Alfred and Commissioner James Gordon for guidance after his wealthy parents are murdered. Bruce Wayne has traditionally been the alter ego of the Caped Crusader — but Mazouz will not at any point become Batman in the show, something Warner Bros. took pains to point that out in announcing the casting.
Also cast in “Gotham,” which has a series order from Fox, is Camren Bicondova, who will play Selina Kyle, a teenage orphan and street thief who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable.

Twelve-year-old David Mazouz, who played the young lead opposite Kiefer Sutherland in Touch, is taking on a lead role in another Fox drama series, the Batman prequel Gotham. He will play the iconic comic book character of Bruce Wayne who will grow up to become the Caped Crusader. Also cast in the project, based on DC characters from the Batman universe, is newcomer Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle and future Catwoman. Gotham explores the origin stories of Commissioner James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) as an idealistic rookie detective in Gotham City, along with Wayne and the villains who made Gotham City famous. The preteen Wayne is sentenced to a solitary life after the tragic murder of his wealthy parents and relies on the guidance and protection of Alfred Pennyworth (Sean Pertwee) and Gordon. Mazouz’s casting stems from a talent deal Fox inked with him following Touch‘s cancellation in May after two seasons. »

It's time to meet Batman and Catwoman. Sort of. Gotham has finally found its Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle, aka the future Batman and Catwoman, E! News has confirmed. Touch actor David Mazouz will take on the role of a preteen Bruce Wayne (ahem, not Batman) in Fox's highly anticipated Commissioner Gordon origin series, while acting newcomer Camren Bicondova has been cast as the teenage Selina Kyle. Their casting completes Gotham's series regular roles. The two young actors join a cast that includes Ben McKenzie, Donal Logue and Jada Pinkett Smith, among others. Gotham's Bruce Wayne isn't a playboy-by-day, vigilante-by-night, but a preteen who has been sentenced »
"Gotham" -- which Wbtv really wants you to know is a Commissioner Gordon origin story and *not* a Batman prequel -- has cast youthful versions of two characters who are going to be really, really, really familiar to comic book, TV and movie fans. The Fox drama, already ordered to series for the 2014-2015 TV season, has confirmed casting for the roles of Bruce Wayne and Selina Kyle. See, I told you that you'd heard of them. He's the future man they call Batman! She's the future woman they call Catwoman! But for now, they're still just kids. David Mazouz ("Touch") has been cast as the preteen Bruce Wayne. The pilot features the traumatic event that sets the forces in motion for Wayne to eventually don the cowl, but we're a long way from that occurring. As the show begins, Bruce Wayne is just a sad kid under the watchful »

The Wrap report that 14-year old actor David Mazouz (tv series Touch) has been cast as the "serious and soulful" preteen Bruce Wayne in Fox's Gotham pilot. In addition, Newcomer Camren Bicondova has also been cast as Selina Kyle, "a teenage orphan, street thief and skilled pickpocket who is suspicious and wholly unpredictable."
