James Remar (The Path) is heading to Gotham City. The Dexter alum has been tapped to play Frank Gordon, Jim’s (Ben McKenzie) uncle, on the current third season of Fox’s Batman origin series.
Frank Gordon is a master at playing both sides and a man who knows how to keep a secret. Frank abandoned the family after Jim’s father’s fatal car crash and now, 25 years later, he’s returned to reconnect with his estranged nephew. But Frank harbors a dark secret, one that will upset the very foundations of Jim’s world and force him into a terrible choice between saving his family and saving his city.
From writer/executive producer Bruno Heller, Gotham follows one cop’s rise through a dangerously corrupt city teetering between good and evil, and chronicles the birth of one of the most popular super heroes of our time.
Remar can currently be seen alongside Aaron Paul and Michelle Monaghan in Hulu’s The Path and in a recurring role opposite Rob Lowe on CBS’ Code Black. His other recent credits include The Shannara Chronicles, State of Affairs and Grey’s Anatomy and feature Papa: Hemingway in Cuba.
