    Firstly I absolutely loved Gotham. It was like a movie.
    Secondly he looks great here, love his style lately!

  • boomerang

    Ben was super in Gotham. Something to make Monday a day to look forward to!

    Great cover and video feature. Smart suit for Today!

  • classics

    I’ve never seen Bello before, good cover and I especially like the video. Sort of outside the box.

    Nicely suited up for the Today Show too.

    Most of all, Gotham was great. Ben rocked!

  • driving by


    Agree and agree! Ben was terrific in Gotham and I liked the show more than I expected to, so that was a bonus.

  • eire

    I thought Ben was excellent in Gotham. He nailed all of the emotions plus the physical parts with the chases, fights and such. Well done!

    It’s a pretty intense looking Bello cover and thumbs up for a more in depth video with a cool look to it. Stylin’ for Today!

  • gojee

    Very impressive in Gotham. Can’t wait for more!

    Edgy look on Bello’s cover. Good format in the interview. Not the same old same old.

    I saw a clip from Today too. Blue’s a good call!

    Congrats to Ben and the whole Gotham team. Amazing performance and job well done. It’s great to have him back on TV every week. Missed that! 16 episodes, right?

    Thanks for adding the Bello cover and conversation, JJ. Good ones. I’ll have to go hunting for the Today segment.

    Terrific to see Ben on a weekly show again. He was excellent on Monday even though the pilot was so fast paced and had to fit so much in. I really love watching his expressions and the subtle things and there wasn’t much time for that, but I’m sure it will come.

    Thanks for the new video and the pics from Bello and Today too, Jared.

  • Jake Gyllenhaal

    he should make a movie with me and Zach Efron having a threesome.

  • nexus

    Very impressive showing in Gotham by Ben. I’m excited to see what’s in store and hope it’s a great role.

    Cool video with the casual conversation and edgy, urban take by Bello.

  • slainte

    Bravo to Ben for Gordon’s intro. So great to be able to watch him at work every week again. Here’s to an excellent ride getting to know his new character.

    The style of the video is similar to the cover and I like that it’s not any kind of cookie-cutter feel.

    Looking forward to Monday for a change already.

    A most excellent job by Mr. McK in the premiere. I’ll be looking forward to every week. You’re right about the chaotic kind of pace. So much to do and so little time to get everything set up. Ben’s amazing at doing so much with almost no words. He says so much with his eyes and body language. I hope that there will be plenty of chances for that to shine. Bring it on! Hello to Bello, too!

  • tnine

    Props to Ben for an outstanding introduction to young Gordon. He brought all of the qualities that I expected and I’m really curious to get backstory now to learn a lot more. I’m not any kind of comic or Batman fan at all, but Ben made like and root for Gordon right off. Ready to take a look at Bello’s video. Very ready for many more Mondays and seasons with Ben back on TV.

  • shayes

    Congrats to Ben for what will be another memorable portrayal for him. I don’t know anything about Jim Gordon, so this is my intro. Meeting him when he’s young works best for me and I hope Ben will really get to develop the character with plenty of background to show what makes him tick. A great start and lots of promise for Gotham. Bello’s video has a low-key approach. Nice one.

  • carambola

    I know zilch about Gordon, Gotham City and Batman and never had any interest, but Ben sold me and invested me in this guy right away. I think the dialogue and writing will find a groove in regular episodes with less to fit in the hour. Ben was great in the action sequences that he excels at, but I’m also looking forward to the slower and more quiet, emotional moments. He owns those, even with no words.

    Bello’s behind-the-scenes video with photo shoot, interview and clips is a good, different kind of combo.

  • duncanl96

    Ben definitely got me on board in a heartbeat. I’m excited to get Gordon’s story and perspective. Ben was always amazing at being the eyes and ears of the audience in The O.C. and SouthLAnd and I hope this is the best one yet. Off and running! There’s been so much media surrounding Gotham, but I like that Bello Mag’s is less standard interview and more friendly sitdown.

  • all aboard

    Wonderful beginning for Ben in Gotham and lots of potential for the characters and show. Can’t wait for Ben to peel back the layers to reveal what motivates Gordon and why. I’ve never seen Bello before, but I like the video. Thanks for the preview, Just Jared.
