Broadway's Carol Kane Joins Cast of New FOX Series GOTHAM

TVLine reports that Oscar nominee and Broadway star Carol Kane has joined the cast of FOX's upcoming Batman-themed series, GOTHAM. The actress will appear in a recurring role as Gertrud, the mother of Robin Lord Taylor's Oswald Cobblepot, the future villain 'The Penguin.'

Carol Kane was most recently seen on Broadway in Harvey. Her many theatre credits include Family Week; Debutante Ball; John Cassavettes' Woman of Mystery; The Tempest; Wasp and Other Plays; Love, Loss, and What I Wore; Ian Rickson's The Children's Hour (West End), and The Vagina Monologues.

She made her film debut in Mike Nichols' Carnal Knowledge, and also appeared in the films Wedding in White, The Last Detail, Dog Day Afternoon, Annie Hall, The Lemon Sisters, The Princess Bride, Scrooged, My Blue Heaven, Trees Lounge, Addams Family Values, When A Stranger Calls, Flashback, The World's Greatest Lover, Office Killer, Sleepwalk With Me, and Hester Street which garnered her an Academy award nomination.

Most widely known for her two-time Emmy-winning performance in "Taxi," Ms. Kane also appeared on the following TV series: "Pearl," "All Is Forgiven," "Chicago Hope" (Emmy nomination), "Law & Order: SVU," and "Two and a Half Men."

About GOTHAM:

Before there was Batman, there was "Gotham." Everyone knows the name Commissioner Gordon. He is one of the crime world's greatest foes, a man whose reputation is synonymous with law and order. But what is known of Gordon's story and his rise from rookie detective to Police Commissioner? What did it take to navigate the multiple layers of corruption that secretly ruled Gotham City, the spawning ground of the world's most iconic villains? And what circumstances created them - the larger-than-life personas who would become Catwoman, The Penguin, The Riddler, Two-Face and The Joker?

The cast also includes Ben McKenzie as Detective James Gordon, Donal Logue as Harvey Bullock, Jada Pinkett Smith as Fish Mooney, Sean Pertwee as Alfred, Erin Richards as Barbara Kean, David Mazouz as Bruce Wayne, Camren Bicondova as Selina Kyle/the future Catwoman, and Zabryna Guevara as Captain Sarah Essen.

"Gotham" premieres this fall on FOX with Kane slated to make her first appearance in episode two.
