We’ll soon be meeting another Gordon family member.
Dexter alum James Remar has joined the cast of FOX’s Gotham as Frank Gordon, uncle to Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie). Like Jada Pinkett Smith‘s Fish Mooney, Frank will also be an original character – not existing in DC Comics. His character description can be read below:
“Frank is a master at playing both sides and a man who knows how to keep a secret. Frank abandoned the family after Jim’s father’s fatal car crash and now, 25 years later, he’s returned to reconnect with his estranged nephew. But Frank harbors a dark secret, one that will upset the very foundations of Jim’s world and force him into a terrible choice between saving his family and saving his city.”
Aside from Gotham, Remar will also be seen in the second season of Hulu’s The Path – starring Aaron Paul, Hugh Dancy, and Michelle Monaghan.
His recurring role on Gotham will start in early 2017, with the winter finale airing this Monday.
