Jada Pinkett Smith is kicking butts and taking names in the TV series “Gotham.” She recently stopped by ABC News as a guest on “Popcorn with Peter Travers” to talk about her recurring role in the new season which kicked off just last week.
The show is based on characters in DC comics’ “Batman” franchise and Smith plays gang boss Fish Mooney.
“The Fish Mooney character was created for the television show,” said Smith. “She was just brought there for that first year and that’s what the agreement was. But who knew that people would love her so much. So then they brought her back. You either love her or you love to hate her. But either way it’s still love.”
Coincidentally, both she and husband Will Smith have landed on screen roles in the DC Comics family. Will Smith just starred in the summer blockbuster movie “Suicide Squad.” And the comic book character appeal may be rubbing off on the couple’s teen children, Jaden and Willow. Jaden has even asked his mom to hook him up with a role on the “Gotham” TV series.
