James Remar is set to join the cast of Gotham as Frank Gordon, the estranged uncle to Ben McKenzie’s Jim Gordon.
According to Variety, Remar landed the role recently with his character said to be a master at double-teaming and knowing how to keep a secret safe.
In the comics, Frank Gordon became estranged to Jim after the boy’s father died in a car crash, but now he is back to reconnect with his nephew. But, Frank has some secrets of his own, and one of them will threaten Jim’s worldview. The secret’s revelation will force the latter into deciding what’s more important: his family or his city.
The all-new “Mad City: Beware the Green-Eyed Monster” episode of Gotham will air Monday 28 November.
