David Zayas, best know as Lt. Angel Batista on Showtime’s “Dexter” and as Enrique Morales on “Oz,” has joined the cast of Fox’s Batman prequel series “Gotham”.
Zayas will play the recurring role of mob boss Salvatore Maroni, a dangerous gangster and a violent rival to the city’s biggest crime kingpin Carmine Falcone (John Doman). The pair are duking it out for control of the city, whilst Jada Pinkett Smith’s Fish Mooney and Robin Taylor Lord’s Oswald Cobblepot are wild cards who could disrupt the battle.
In the comics Maroni was infamous for disfiguring D.A. Harvey Dent, which lead to his transformation into Two-Face. Eric Roberts portrayed the role in “The Dark Knight”.
