American Horror Story: Hotel is currently airing on FX and continuing the hot streak that the series is enjoying on the network.
The last time we saw actress Morena Baccarin on the FOX network, she was flying free with the crew of the ship Serenity on the Joss Whedon created cult series Firefly. That is all about to change with the announcement that she will be joining the cast of the new hit series Gotham.
As reported by Deadline, Morena will have a recurring role this season and will become a regular in Season 2.
She will play Dr. Leslie Thompkins, a gifted and dedicated physician who was a friend of Bruce Wayne’s parents, Thomas and Martha. She is determined to use her skills to aid Gotham’s most in need, which currently means working at the newly opened Arkham Asylum’s Home for the Criminally Insane.Morena was last scene on the Showtime series Homeland for which she received an Emmy nomination for her role. She has also starred in series such as V and Stargate SG-1.
