Matches Malone is an iconic alias for Batman when he goes undercover to infiltrate the criminal underworld of Gotham, but at one time, he was an actual person. According to a report from Comic Book, Michael Bowen, best known for his character Uncle Jack on Breaking Bad was cast to play Matches Malone on Gotham, and he will debut in the second half of season two.
A character description was revealed as well, describing what we can expect from the character:
"One of Gotham's deadliest killers, Matches Malone is a weathered, philosophical hitman who may be the triggerman behind one of the most important crimes in Gotham's history."
Malone first appeared in BATMAN #242 back in 1972, and after the character's death, Batman began using the character's name and likeness as an alias when he needs to get some inside information from criminal underground.
Matches will appear in the second half of this season on Gotham, which airs on Monday nights on Fox.
