Gotham Casts The Penguin’s Mother

Carol Kane (“Scrooged,” “The Princess Bride”) has joined the cast of FOX’s upcoming Batman-prequel series “Gotham”.

The actress will play the recurring role of Gertrud Kapelput, the mother of future Penguin himself Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor).

The character is essentially a Norma Desmond type – a proud and faded beauty with delusions of grandeur. Her first appearance will be in the show’s second episode.
