Who doesn't love the GCPD's resident gritty, grumpy and wise-cracking detective Harvey Bullock? Underneath that rough-around-the-edges exterior, Harvey Bullock can be characterized as a steadfast symbol of immense loyalty to the protection of Gotham City. A long time ally of Jim Gordon, and an on-again, off-again Batman supporter, Harvey Bullock has seen the darkest depths of Gotham's criminal underworld and continues to combat it with both a comedic and defiant attitude. When I think of Harvey Bullock, I immediately think of Robert Costanzo's fantastic performance in Batman: The Animated Series and The New Batman Adventures. Costanzo reprised his role for the @batmanarkham
Origins video game, as well as the animated series' spin-off films: Mask of the Phantasm, SubZero and Mystery of the Batwoman. In the adaptation of The Killing Joke, Robert Atkin Downes provided the voice work. In @gothamonfox
expertly brings the character to life in a truly great take on the character. Despite having originally been written to appear in Batman Returns, rewrites removed the Harvey Bullock character meaning Bullock has yet to appear in a film adaptation. The actor who portrays Detective Harvey Bullock has tough work ahead given the iconic performances by Costanzo and Logue as well as delicately balancing between a gruff police officer and a loyal ally with a heart of gold. I think that John Goodman would be a great fit in this role bringing elements of comedy and drama to his performance. His long and impressive resume speaks for itself and his delivery of the character would be great and comic accurate. Who would you cast?
Next week, we cast a criminal who always has a hand in some of Gotham's most devious criminal schemes: The Ventriloquist!
