Carol Kane Joins The Cast Of GOTHAM As [SPOILER]'s Mother

Anger Management actress Carol Kane is one of the first post-pilot casting additions to Fox's upcoming Batman prequel Gotham, and the fact that she's playing [SPOILER]'s mother may give us an indication of which comic books the series is turning to for inspiration...


TVLine has revealed that Carol Kane (Girls) has joined the cast of the first season of Gotham as Gertrud Kapelput, the mother of Oswald Cobblepot (a.k.a. The Penguin, played in this series by Robin Lord Taylor). Fans of the comic books will know that this character played a major role in the villains early years within the pages of Gregg Hurwitz's Penguin: Pain and Prejudice series. Whether some of that story will be adapted remains to be seen, but they would be smart to turn to it for inspiration. The site also has a brief character description, stating that she will be a "proud and faded beauty with delusions of grandeur." What do you guys think about this latest addition to the cast of Gotham? As always, sound off with your thoughts on this news in the usual place!
