Based on DC Comics characters, Gotham explores the origin stories of the Caped Crusader's eventual ally James Gordon (Benjamin McKenzie), a detective with the Gotham City Police Department, and his battle with the villains who made the city famous.
Zayas will play DC Comics character Sal Maroni, a dangerous gangster who will come to blows with Carmine Falcone (John Doman) in a bid for control of the city. Maroni, who was portrayed by Eric Roberts in The Dark Knight, is also behind the incident that disfigured Harvey Dent, turning him into Two-Face.
Gotham will premiere Monday, Sept. 22 at 8/7c on Fox. Check out a trailer for the series here.
