4. Damian Lewis
Questions over his follicle growing abilities aside, Damian Lewis has all the credentials needed to play James Gordon. Many incarnations of Gothams Commissioner have been of the ginger variety, so Lewis would fit perfectly if this was the route the filmmakers decided to go. Not only has he the look, but his variety of roles could help him bring to life the perfect Gordon. Authority is not something foreign to Lewis, as he played Captain Winters in HBOs acclaimed World War II series Band of Brothers. With Winters, Lewis brought the likeability and confidence that is so necessary for Batmans ally. It doesnt hurt that he boasts an impeccable American accent either.
