Gotham: Jerome Is Just Jerome (Maybe)


IS Jerome the Joker? While many refer to him as the future clown prince of crime on Gotham, the cast and showrunners have been very careful to say that Jerome may or may not be the Joker, and that the Joker could be more of an idea at this point. Cameron Monaghan, who plays Jerome on Gotham, reiterated that sentiment.

"I have to think of him as Jerome because, as it is, he is Jerome. In our scripts, he is Jerome. Whoever Jerome is, he’s a man who loves pain, and he loves to laugh at other people’s pain. That’s the driving component behind him. That’s what I go with.There’s plenty of possibility. The only way to say it is that he either is or he isn’t, or maybe he represents the idea. Maybe in this universe, The Joker is not one specific man, but more of an idea, at least to this point. This is still very early in the mythology. Who knows where it’s going to go from here."

Regardless of whether or not Jerome is the Joker, he is certainly key the beginnings of The Joker. Find out how the idea of the Joker evolves by tuning into Gotham Mondays on Fox!
