Is Gotham about to need to cast a fourth person to play Poison Ivy? CarterMatt is starting to wonder based on the latest pilot casting that is out there.
Per a report from Deadline, Peyton List (whose credits also include The Flash and The Tomorrow People) is set to appear in Fox’s Gone, Baby, Gone pilot adaptation alongside The Originals star Joseph Morgan. List will play the part of Angela, a private detective who is partnered up with Patrick (Morgan), and tries to solve crimes throughout Boston that slip through the cracks of the system. These two parties are going to have a chance to expand a world that was first adapted in the Ben Affleck movie of the same name — List’s role was first played in that project by Michelle Monaghan.
As for whether or not this series (if picked up) completely negates any future appearances from List on Gotham, not necessarily. Given that both series are filmed for Fox there could be a way to make it work where she appears on both shows, though her Gotham appearances could end up being somewhat sporadic. A lot of it could ultimately depend on just when this new series films and also then where — Gotham of course would need to have the right story for her. List was cast as Ivy earlier this season, replacing Maggie Geha who in turn replaced Clare Foley in the role.
There are going to be some new episodes of Gotham airing on Thursday nights on Fox, and there are at least a few more set to feature List as Ivy. Beyond that the jury is still out on what her story will be. Meanwhile, Fox has until later this spring to make a decision on Gone, Baby, Gone and the majority of the rest of their pilots.
