Gotham Exclusive: Carol Kane on Playing the Penguin's Mom and Loving a Monster

Carol Kane

Anyone who watched the first episode of Fox's Gotham could make the argument that James Gordon (Ben McKenzie) is actually responsible for turning low-level thug Oswald Cobblepot (Robin Lord Taylor) into the man who will eventually become the Penguin. 

But did Oswald's descent into evil start before he was marched to the end of that Gotham City pier at gunpoint? On Monday's episode (8/7c, Fox) viewers will meet Oswald's mother, a European immigrant named Gertrude Kabelput — and in a brilliant bit of casting, she'll be played by Oscar nominee and two-time Emmy winner Carol Kane.

Any last-minute spoilers before the Castle premiere? — Michelle
Although it's not built as a two-parter like last year's season-opener, don't expect to get all the answers about who caused Castle's car accident or why by the end of the premiere. But do be prepared for the answers that are immediately available to make every character — even Beckett — seriously evaluate how much they really know (or believe in) Castle. The only silver lining: Those immediate answers don't necessarily paint the full picture. But will the damage already be done?

Gotham: 6 Things Fox's Batman Prequel Gets Right (And 3 Things We're Worried About)

Ban McKenzie, Donal Logue, Jada Pinkett Smith

Fox's Gotham is arguably the most anticipated new show of the fall season, but that doesn't necessarily mean it's destined to become a hit. 

The new drama, created by The Mentalist's Bruno Heller examines the city protected by Batman long before the Dark Knight was around to protect it. Stepping in as the city's hero is rookie detective (and future police commissioner) Jim Gordon (Ben McKenzie) who, along with his cynical partner Harvey Bullock (Donal Logue), encounter nascent versions of the Batman franchise's villains, including The Penguin (Robin Lord Taylor), Catwoman (Camren Bicondova) and The Riddler (Cory Michael Smith), while investigating the murders of the parents of a 12-year-old Bruce Wayne (David Mazouz).
