Gotham: James Carpinello Cast as Mob Son Mario Falcone

James Carpinello will play Mario Falcone on 'Gotham'

Gotham has cast James Carpinello as a descendant of the Falcone mobster clan named Mario Falcone.

He has apparently rejected his family’s criminal ways and has established a life for himself as an Ivy League-educated doctor. According to TVLine, he will have his romantic eyes set on Lee Tompkins (Morena Baccarin), with whom Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) set out to reconcile with at the end of Season 2.

The role has been described as “pivotal.”

Carpinello has previously starred on The Good Wife and Person of Interest.

Gotham returns for its third season on Monday, Sept. 19 at 8pm EST on Fox.SuperFable
