In a recent interview on E! host Maria Menounos’ online broadcast network, AfterBuzz TV, actor Drew Powell who plays Butch Gilzean on Fox’s Gotham, sat down with hosts J.J. Jurgens and Nando Velasquez.

Powell discussed his role as the original character stating, “What’s fun is we get to be this new character that slides into this world that we all know and love.” Powell shares a lot of screen time with co-star Jada Pinkett Smith. “With Jada and I, Fish and Butch, we’ve had this kinda chemistry from day one and it’s been so much fun to play.
