While it's a distinct possibility that the showrunners of 'Gotham' are just teasing us, we might already know who The Joker is. Last season we met Jerome. Played by Cameron Monaghan, Jerome is an extremely unhinged kid who murdered his own mother. His echoing laughter in the interrogation scene was definitely familiar. And yesterday Monaghan posted a very promising picture on Instagram.
It's not definitive, but dang wouldn't it be cool?
Monaghan is best known for his ongoing role on Shameless, where he plays a young man with bipolar disorder. Obviously the roles are extremely different, but in this most recent season Monaghan demonstrated astonishing skill depicting the illness. Check out a sample of his most recent work on the show below:

Following in the footsteps of Heath Ledger and Mark Hamill must be intimidating for such a young actor. I think his outstanding performance surely proved that he'd be a great Joker. Is anyone else excited to see what he'd bring to the table?
