Gotham: Season 3 to Introduce Mario Falcone
June 23, 2016 – by Mark Cook
Following the news that Jamie Chung had been cast as Valerie Vale, Maggie Geha as an updated Poison Ivy, and rumors that casting for the Mad Hatter are currently in place, Fox has now cast James Carpinello as Mario Falcone. Carpinello is best known for his work in Person of Interest and The Good Wife.
First introduced in Jeph Loeb and Tim Sale’s Batman: Dark Victory, Mario Falcone is one of the sons of mob boss Carmine Falcone, who was set to be the heir to the Falcone Family.
Gotham: Season 3 looks to present Carpinello’s Mario Falcone as rejecting the family “business”, and looks to establish himself as an Ivy League alumni currently working as an ER doctor. He will also be used to create tension between Jim Gordon and Lee Thompkins’ relationship.
Will Mario Falcone truly establish himself as one of Gotham’s elite, or does he have other motives? Find out when Gotham returns on Monday, September 19 at 8/7.
