Fox has released promotional images from the March 14 episode of "Gotham," an installment titled "This Ball of Mud and Meanness." The images show what guest star Lori Petty will look like when she makes her debut on the pre-Batman drama -- and she looks a lot like the Joker.

Petty was cast in the role back in November. Her character is named Jerri and was described at the time as the "flamboyant and enigmatic hostess of an underground club where mass murder and art are celebrated in equal measure." Judging by these pics, that description appears to be apt.
