Milo Ventimiglia is no stranger to the superhero world, with a résumé that includes NBC’s Heroes and voice roles on Marvel animated series including Ultimate Spider-Man. But his new character on Fox’s Gotham is far from anyone’s idea of a hero.

“They took a name from the comic, and they created their own character,” the Mob City alum tells The Hollywood Reporter about the Ogre, who makes his debut Monday. “The character they gave Jim Gordon to fight, right up until the very end, is a pretty bad guy.”

The veteran actor — who next appears in ABC’s summer scripted mystery The Whispers — is having a field day on Gotham, where he’s stretching his acting wings with his role as the big bad. “[It’s fun to have] the opportunity to step outside of yourself and create a character that, in real life, we just can’t do,” he says. “I mean, we can, but we’ll go to jail.”

“The idea of who this guy is, and why he is, is so compelling that every turn, every kill, every moment for this guy — there’s a reason why he’s doing it all,” says Ventimiglia, who is acting opposite longtime friend Ben McKenzie (James Gordon). “It may not be your reason or my personal reason, but there is a reason.”

Ventimiglia, who will recur for the remainder of the DC Comics adaptation’s freshman season, knew he was signing on to portray a serial killer looking for love and is looking forward to learning more about the mysterious character who goes by the name of Jason Lennon.

“I discovered — as everyone else will discover — his motives and how he was created,” he says of the role, which also serves as a reunion for the Gilmore Girls alum with executive producer John Stephens.

Furthermore, the role marks an extension of Ventimiglia’s personal interests — the fanboy says he was “raised on comics” and watched Fox’s Gotham from the start to support pals McKenzie and co-star Donal Logue.

“Those were the stories I was following as a kid, the stories that expanded my creative mind and got me excited about being a good guy in life and standing up for others that were oppressed or hurt or looked down on, for whatever reason,” he says. “This is the world that raised me.”

While the ultimate fate of the Ogre will remain a mystery for a few weeks — the actor even refused to reveal whether he would be sharing scenes with other villains featured on the Fox hit, though he did say that the character is “on his own path” — Ventimiglia describes his time on Gotham as “a perfect storm.”

Gotham airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Fox.

We love to play games with our children. But what happens when someone else starts to play with them, too? Someone we don’t know. Can’t see. Can’t hear. In “The Whispers,” someone or something – is manipulating the ones we love most to commit the unthinkable. In the country’s center of political power, Washington D.C., several kids have been talking about their imaginary friend, Drill. What the parents don’t know is that this friend is not as imaginary as they think. And when the mysterious games Drill convinces them to play turn dangerous, FBI child specialist Claire Bennigan is called in to investigate. What is it that Drill wants, and why does he – or it – only communicate with children? As the clock counts down, a suspenseful race will begin to save not only their families, but the world.  Before it’s too late.

The Whispers” stars Lily Rabe as Claire Bennigan, Barry Sloane as Wes Lawrence, Milo Ventimiglia as John Doe, Derek Webster as Jessup Rollins, Kristen Connolly as Lena Lawrence, Kylie Rogers as Minx Lawrence and Kyle Harrison Breitkopf as Henry Bennigan.  The series is executive produced by Steven Spielberg, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and Zack Estrin. The pilot was written and co-executive produced by Soo Hugh, who also developed the series. “The Whispers” is produced by ABC Studios, with Amblin TV as co-producer.

It might not have Batman just yet, but Gotham is about to find itself home to a former hero — or, at least, a former member of the Heroes cast.

Milo Ventimiglia has booked a recurring role on the Fox freshman drama, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Ventimiglia will recur and play a character new to the Batman cannon known as “the Ogre.”

Ventimiglia’s character — whose real name is Jason Lennon — is described as “handsome, wealthy and seductive,” but that merely hides a dark side: He’s also a serial killer who’s been murdering young women in Gotham for almost a decade in his search for a perfect mate. Unsurprisingly, this pits against Ben McKenzie’s upright Detective Jim Gordon.

Although there’s an Ogre in the DC Comics mythology, Gotham’s character is unrelated, and an entirely new creation for the show. He’ll debut in the 19th episode of the season, and is set for a major role.

The Gotham gig brings the actor back to the world of television superheroics after his four-season run on NBC’s Heroes, but he’s kept a foot in the genre ever since, voicing characters for Marvel Anime and Ultimate Spider-Man in the last few years alongside starring roles in TNT’s Mob City and the upcoming midseason drama The Whispers on ABC.

Gotham airs Mondays on Fox. Ventimiglia is repped by CAA and Management 360.
