Actor ROBIN LORD TAYLOR is impressing both fans and critics with his portrayal of Oswald Cobblepot on the new hit FOX series GOTHAM. As one of the many proto-villains in this jam-packed origin story, Cobblepot will eventually go on to become Batman arch-nemesis The Penguin.
A relatively unknown actor, TAYLOR has actually guest starred on such highly acclaimed series as THE GOOD WIFE, LAW & ORDER: SVU, PERSON OF INTEREST and THE WALKING DEAD. In addition to that, he and pal BILLY EICHNER co-created and co-starred in CREATION NATION: A LIVE TALK SHOW which they performed at the 2008 Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
A certified scene stealer, TAYLOR is a stand-out as the much put-upon Cobblepot and he’s well aware of the responsibility that goes along with portraying one of the DC Universe’s most notorious bad guys. We recently sat down with him to talk about the new series and he admitted his good fortune as well as playing to the fans.
GOTHAM airs tonight on FOX.
