Gotham Casts Dexter's David Zayas as Sal Maroni

David Zayas, known as a man witha  badge in a cult-hit TV series, is headed for Gotham to play somebody on the wrong side of the law.

He'll play gangster Sal Maroni on the upcoming FOX Batman prequel, Deadline reports.

Here's how they describe the role:


In time, Maroni will develop into one of Batman's first enemies and become infamous as the man responsible for disfiguring DA Harvey Dent, leading to his transformation into Two-Face. But for now, as he strives to gain more territory in Gotham, he'll find himself on a crash course with his rival Falcone (John Doman) for control of the city.

In the Christopher Nolan films, Maroni was played by Eric Roberts.
