On the Gotham episode “Rise of the Villains: Worse Than a Crime,” Gotham City cop Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) teams up with some unlikely allies (The Penguin/Oswald Cobblepot) to rescue Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz) who’s been kidnapped by Theo Galavan (James Frain). Meanwhile, Gotham fans will meet Victor Fries. When not working for Wayne Enterprises as a cryonics engineer, Dr. Fries is trying to find a cure for his wife Nora (Kristen Hager) who is gravely ill. Along the way, he’s developed a freeze gun which he uses against Batman as Mr. Freeze.
Victor Fries aka Mr. Freeze is portrayed by Nathan Darrow. He’s best known for his role as Edward Meechum on House of Cards. Darrow is currently working on the HBO movie The Wizard of Lies about Bernie Madoff. Based on the book by Diana Henriques and directed by Barry Levinson, The Wizard of Lies stars Robert De Niro as Madoff, Michelle Pfeiffer as his wife Ruth, and Darrow as their late son Andrew, who died of cancer in 2014 at the age of 48. The mid-season series finale of Gotham will air on November 30 at 8pm on Fox. The season will return — with more Mr. Freeze — on February 29, 2016.
