The bummer part is that the folks in Australia who bought tickets for his Yeezus Tour are gonna get the shaft for a few months. More »

Last month we learned that the new Batman prequel series Gotham has cast Benjamin McKenzie in the lead role of Detective Jim Gordon and Jada Pinkett-Smith as the villainous bad guy Fish Mooney. Today we learn that the series has cast the pre-teen versions of Bruce Wayne (who grows up to become Batman) and Selina Kyle (who grows up to become Catwoman). Actors David Mazouz (who starred alongside Kiefer Sutherland in the Fox series Touch) and Camren Bicondova (a newcomer to Hollywood) will play the young versions of the iconic characters of Batman and Catwoman. Because this is a prequel series, the focus will NOT be on Batman … but any prequel series that is set in Gotham City must feature, at least in some way, the Bat and Cat characters that we love so much.
