Gotham Casts Benedict Samuel as Mad Hatter in Season 3

Things are going to get a little nutty with Gotham‘s latest casting for the new season.

The Walking Dead alum Benedict Samuel has landed the role of Mad Hatter aka Tetch in Gotham season 3, according to TVLine.

According to the casting call, Tetch is described as “a talented hypnotist teetering on the edge of madness. He arrives in Gotham with an unwavering desire to find his sister, Alice, a young woman who went missing in the city years ago. It is anyone’s guess just how far down the rabbit hole he’s willing to go in order to find her.”

Samuel joins other new additions such as James Carpinello, Jamie Chung, and Maggie Geha.

Gotham season 3 premieres Sept. 19 at 8/7c on FOX.
