'Gotham' To Tease Multiple 'Joker' Origin Stories

Several weeks ago it was revealed that in the pilot episode there is a scene in Fish Mooney's bar with a Comedian on stage. Many assumed that this may be the early version of Joker before he becomes The Joker. Well, Bleeding Cool has learned that each episode will tease a different Joker origin story with multiple actors before the big reveal:
Basically, every episode in the first season will introduce a character that might be a future Joker, each emphasising aspects of the character’s iconography, a card sharp, a flower seller, a clown, or just a guy with a very big grin.

All relatively unknown actors. All potentially a Joker. But only one of them being the actual Clown Prince Of Crime.

In the comics The Joker even jokes about having multiple origins. One of his origins like in The Killing Joke shows him as a failed comedian who can't  pay the bills for his wife. Another origin is the most accepted which is the Red Hood storyline when Joker is a failed magician and falls into a vat of chemicals after being chased by a young Batman.
