Add one more villain to the list: EW has confirmed that David Zayas of Dexter fame has been cast as Sal Maroni in Fox’s upcoming Gotham. Deadline first reported the news.

In Batman lore, Maroni is a self-made crime boss who starts from the bottom and works his way up to the second most powerful mobster in Gotham City, nipping at the heels of mob boss Carmine Falcone (to be played John Dorman in Gotham). Ultimately, Maroni is the man responsible for District Attorney Harvey Dent’s transformation into the villainous Two-Face. The character was most famously  portrayed by Eric Roberts in The Dark Knight.
