Gotham star Ben McKenzie teased the arrival of another Gordon family member in a recent Facebook Live event with TV Guide Magazine and now we know who that family member is. FOX and Warner Bros. TV announced today that Dexter star James Remar has been cast as Frank Gordon, Jim’s uncle
“Frank Gordon: Jim’s uncle, 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, twenty-five 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.”
McKenzie said in the Q&A that we will be seeing Uncle Frank in the episode that McKenzie will be making his directorial debut with this season.
“There will be another Gordon family member that will be introduced, I can tease that. Actually, that’s part of the episode that I get to direct. It’s my first time ever, directing, I’m so excited! I start prepping right before Christmas and we start shooting it right after, so very soon. I’m reading the outlines right now and I work story documents and things like that. But I haven’t actually gotten the script yet.”
