No, she’s not related to Batman co-creator Bob Kane. She’s Penguin’s mother! Veteran actress Carol Kane has joined the cast of Gotham as Gertrud, the mother of Oswald Cobblepot. She’s described by TVline as ‘A proud and faded beauty with delusions of grandeur’, and will make her first appearance in episode number 2.
GOTHAM is an origin story of the great DC Comics Super-Villains and vigilantes, revealing an entirely new chapter that has never been told. From executive producer/writer Bruno Heller (“The Mentalist,” “Rome”), GOTHAM follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering on the edge of evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
Gotham will air Mondays on FOX, starting this fall.
