Yesterday I kicked this week off with a lovely taste of the luscious ladies man also known as Batmanuel, also known as the Mayor of Gotham. This time, I wanted to go with Polk, played by K. Todd Freeman. Years ago he was Mr. Trick on Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but there's no good embeddable clips of his role online. (And I can't, for the life of me, remember what he did in The Dark Knight. Help!)

So instead, I'm moving on to another player in the Joss Whedon universe. You might have recognized Detective Stevens, played by Keith Szarabajka. While he's the law these days in Gotham, he used to be a man named Holtz, hell-bent on revenge in Angel. Remember? He came through time, all to pay back Angel, and ended up kidnapping Connor and bringing him to a hell dimension? It's all because of the above.
