James Carpinello (“The Mob Doctor,” “Gangster Squad”) has signed on to play Mario Falcone, son of mob boss Carmine Falcone, in the third season of FOX’s “Gotham” says TV Line.
In the series Mario has rejected his family’s criminal ways and made a legitimate life for himself as a well-respected ER doctor. He’s kind, honest and trustworthy, the black sheep of the Falcone clan.
But his arrival will create difficulty in the personal life of Jim Gordon who is trying to win back his pregnant fiancee Leslie Thompkins.
Carpinello will recur in the role throughout the season. “Gotham” returns to screens on September 19th.
