Mario Falcone, the son of mob boss Carmine Falcone, is headed to "Gotham" for Season 3. "The Punisher" star James Carpinello has signed on to play the younger Falcone in a recurring guest role, and his presence will throw a wrench in Jim Gordon's plans to win Leslie Thompkins back.
TVLine describes the character as,
The son of feared mob boss Carmine Falcone (John Doman), Carpinello's Mario has rejected his family's criminal ways and made a legitimate life for himself as a well-respected, Ivy League-educated ER doctor. He's kind, honest and trustworthy, making him the black sheep of the Falcone clan. But his arrival in Gotham will create major waves in the personal life of Jim Gordon, who at the end of Season 2 left town to find and win back his pregnant fiancee Lee.
