October 20, 2014

Drew Powell, a 1998 graduate of DePauw University and one of the stars of the new Fox television show, Gotham, paid a visit to the studios of Indianapolis Fox affiliate WXIN this morning to talk about the program and his career.  The segment began with Powell giving a shout out to his alma mater and the Tiger football team.

In Gotham, which airs Monday nights on Fox, Powell portrays Butch Gilzean, a recurring character described as "the deceptively clever and ambitious second-in-command to sadistic gangster boss Fish Mooney (Jada Pinkett-Smith)."
