GOTHAM: First Look At Carol Kane As 'Gertrud Kapelput'

GOTHAM: First Look At Carol Kane As 'Gertrud Kapelput'

A new still from Fox's upcoming Batman prequel series provides our first look at The Penguin's dear old Mommy. Anger Management actress Carol Kane will play the mother of Robin Lord Taylor's Oswald Cobblepot, and it's a safe bet she'll play a part in how he turns out.

So our Penguin in training obviously changes his name at some point. Could Gotham borrow some elements from Gregg Hurwitz's Penguin: Pain and Prejudice when it comes to this character? Kane's Gertrud Kapelput is described as a "proud and faded beauty with delusions of grandeur."

The series follows one cop, destined for greatness, as he navigates a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the rise of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes. The entirely new, untold chapter comes from executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”) and stars Ben McKenzie (“Southland,” “The O.C.”), Donal Logue (“Vikings,” “Sons of Anarchy”) and Jada Pinkett Smith (“Hawthorne,” “Collateral”).

Gotham kicks off Monday, September 22.

Damn, I misread the title and was hoping they were bringing the Kane family into this (Batwoman).

This thread was heading down a dark path, and I'm the one to blame. Thank you for shining that light at the end of the tunnel.
cipher - 8/28/2014, 8:56 AM
Heh, it's cool, nibs. I live in the States, so my friends say the same thing about me, haha. It's like they expect me to sip tea all day.

Yeah, Coogan's the f*ckin' man.

I've been binging on Fawlty Towers lately. No matter how many times I watch it, I never get tired of it.

My girlfriend isn't into it, though. Eh, whatever.
Doopie - 8/28/2014, 8:57 AM

have you seen The Trip with Coogan and Rob Brydon? very funny, worth a watch if you haven't seen it
batz11 - 8/28/2014, 8:58 AM
