Gotham casts James Carpinello to play retired mob boss’s son Mario Falcone for season three of the Fox series.
James Carpinello has joined the Gotham season 3 cast to play Mario Falcone, son of retired mob boss Carmine Falcone. According to TV Line, his return to his home city means bad news for Jim Gordon and his fiancee Leslie “Lee” Thompkins.
Despite having rejected his father’s criminal ways, and having worked an honest living as a “well-respected Ivy League-educated ER doctor,” he “will create major waves in the personal life of Jim Gordon, who at the end of Season 2 left town to find and win back his fiancee Lee.”
Carpinello’s TV credits include recurring roles in “The Good Wife,” “The Mob Doctor,” and “Person of Interest,” and he has also appeared in the movie Gangster Squad.
