We knew Rachel Bilson looked cray-mazing in a Wonder Woman outfit, but who knew her O.C. co-star would spend so much time fighting crime?

After years as a cop on Southland, Ben McKenzie is pulling duty at the roughest beat in the world - Gotham!

The highly anticipated Batman prequel series has cast Ben as a young Commissioner Gordon as he is just beginning to patrol the meanest streets. He tweeted:

So hot yet so humble!

Fun fact: Ben is one of the very few actors who have ever played Batman! That's some inspired casting!

Now we just can't wait to see that sweet 'stache!

    Very excited about and for Ben. He'll be amazing, as he always is. However, I have to cringe at the very thought of the cheesy 'stache. No. Please, no. I'll vote to banish that and save it for the middle-aged version in the future. I can wait forever to see any sign of it!

    I totally agree that Ben's humble. He's also an excellent actor. I'd never watch this kind of show normally, but I already made it through Southland for Ben. I wouldn't miss him and what he'll bring to the role. I seriously hope that this is a true origin story and that includes any nasty mustache and trappings. Hopefully, that won't be making an appearance when this show is supposed to be set. Congratulations to Ben. Keep on shaving!
