'Bosch' star Titus Welliver: 'Maybe I'm just a cop without a badge'
Titus Welliver isn't the first actor I might have thought of to play Lapd homicide cop Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch, hero of 17 best-selling mystery novels and counting by Michael Connelly (plus multiple appearances in Connelly's "Lincoln Lawyer" series). But that's more because the book series started so long ago, and has allowed Harry to age in real time, so my mental image of him is much older than the "Deadwood" alum. In "Bosch," a new TV series whose first season can be streamed on Amazon Prime starting today, Welliver plays a younger and slightly mellower version of Harry. Connelly and producer Eric Overmyer ("The Wire," "Tremé") adapted the first season from pieces of three different Bosch novels ("The Concrete Blonde," "City of Bones" and "Echo Park"), and tweaks some biographical details. (Over the course of the early books, for instance, Bosch got married, divorced, and had a daughter who's on the

How the Penguin Saved Gotham

  • Cinelinx
The new series Gotham is still finding its feet and many of the cast members seem unsure of where to go with their roles. However, there is one definite bright spot in the series and that’s Robin Lord Taylor as the Penguin, who’s by far the best thing on the show.

The good news for Gotham fans is that the show has been expanded for additional episodes. One of the main reasons for that is Robin Lord Taylor’s scene-stealing role as Oswald Cobblepot, Aka the Penguin. These extra episodes will allow the series more time to find its footing because it’s still raw and needs to cook a bit more before it reaches its potential. In the meantime, however, Taylor’s scenes as the Penguin are always the highlight, and viewers can be carried along through the weaker points of the show by the anticipation of his scenes.

Dexter Alum David Zayas Joins Fox’s Gotham in Mobster Role

Fox's Gotham has added to its mobster ranks by enlisting Dexter alum David Zayas for a recurring role that Batman part and full-time aficionados will most certainly recognize.

Per Deadline, Zayas has been successfully recruited by the Gotham team to portray Mob Boss Salvatore Maroni, a character plucked straight from the pages of DC Comics. Maroni ascends the ranks of crime to achieve second billing under only Carmine Falcone, though considering Gotham is a prequel to Batman, he may have some work to do before calling the shots and taking Falcone on for control of Gotham's drug trade. Later on, Maroni will play an instrumental role in the incident that turns District Attorney Harvey Dent into Two-Face.

The role of Salvatore Maroni was played by Eric Roberts in Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy. Though Maroni had little screen time in only The Dark Knight, he should be more fleshed out in Gotham.

Dexter’s David Zayas Cast as Sal Maroni in Gotham

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to watch the pilot for Fox’s Batman prequel, Gotham. It was one of the best pilot episodes I’ve seen in recent memory. They really have created a rich, expansive world that begs to be explored further. Every member of the cast remained faithful and familiar to those beloved and infamous characters while, at the same time, bringing something new and exciting. Even though the many unknown actors were most entrancing (Robin Lord Taylor as Oswald Cobblepot is a revelation!), the more well-known actors also disappeared into their new roles.

The casting choices have been perfect so far, so I fully trust they’ll make good use of Dexter’s David Zayas, who has been cast as mafia boss Salvatore Maroni. The character was previously featured in The Dark Knight, and was played by Eric Roberts.

'Gotham' Adds 'Dexter' Star David Zayas as Mobster Sal Maroni

'Gotham' Adds 'Dexter' Star David Zayas as Mobster Sal Maroni
Dexter star David Zayas has signed on for a recurring role in the upcoming Fox series Gotham as ruthless mob boss Sal Maroni. It hasn't been confirmed how many episodes the actor will be appearing in.

In the DC Comics, Salvatore Maroni was one of Batman's first enemies, who took control of the city's unions and drug trade. He is best known as the man responsible for the disfigurement of District Attorney Harvey Dent, and his transformation into the villainous Two-Face. However, the show is set several years before these story lines unfold.

In Gotham, Maroni is second in the criminal underworld behind Carmine Falcone (John Doman), with Season 1 putting Maroni on a "crash course" with his bitter rival Falcone as they battle for control of Gotham's underworld. Sal Maroni was most notably played by Eric Roberts in director Christopher Nolan's 2008 feature The Dark Knight.

What's next for 'Luck' (and those unlucky stars)
Anyone who became addicted to HBO’s horse racing drama Luck — which the net elected to cancel on Wednesday — should get some closure in the next two weeks. The ninth and final episode that is set to air on March 25 has the feel of finale, even though it wasn’t necessarily designed to be the series’ last, EW has learned.

And HBO will still release the entire first season on DVD. The only lingering question is whether the scenes that were shot during Luck’s final days will be added as extras: The drama from David Milch and Michael Mann

'Donnie Brasco' 15th Anniversary: 25 Things You Didn't Know About Johnny Depp's Classic Mob Movie

"Donnie Brasco" was like no mob movie that came before it. Based on a true story, that of FBI undercover agent Joseph D. Pistone, who spent years infiltrating New York's Bonnano crime family, its mobsters were decidedly unglamorous petty criminals, guys who had to resort to breaking into parking meters to make their monthly nut. It was directed by an Englishman best known for a Hugh Grant romantic comedy. Its hero, who never fires a gun except on the FBI firing range, was played by Johnny Depp (then best known for quirky, vulnerable man-child roles) and his mentor was played by Al Pacino (as a tired, rumpled mafioso, about a million miles from his Michael Corleone or Tony Montana). That it worked at all was miraculous, especially considering how different it might have been with its initial star and director. The result was a modern classic that made a grown-up

The Blind Side Writer/Director John Lee Hancock Returns to Television with New Crime Drama at ABC

Though he's been dabbling in feature films like The Rookie, The Alamo and most successfully, The Blind Side, writer/director John Lee Hancock previously worked on the small screen with series like Falcone and L.A. Doctors. Now Hancock is poised to return to TV as Deadline reports he will write, direct and executive produce a new untitled crime drama which follows an unorthodox protagonist described as the "Walter Mitty of the crime world." Does that means he only imagines himself to be a successful criminal, but he's really a bumbling, average guy? That remains to be seen as those are all the details we have on the new series at this time. ABC picked up the potential series, and we'll likely hear more about it between now and the next television season in the fall of 2012.

‘Blind Side’ Writer-Helmer John Lee Hancock Teams With Lorenzo Di Bonaventura For ABC Crime Drama Project

Exclusive: John Lee Hancock is returning to television. The Blind Side writer-director has teamed with Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Dan McDermott’s recently launched TV company for an untitled crime drama project that has been sold to ABC.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Alberto Falcone in The Dark Knight Rises

That didn’t take long. Variety have confirmed that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is playing Alberto Falcone in The Dark Knight Rises, the son of mob boss Carmine Falcone (Tom Wilkinson in Batman Begins) – a major character from Jeph Loeb’s The Long Halloween.

The role most definitely positions Levitt as a villain and after the likely inclusion of Marion Cotillard as Talia, the daughter of Ra’s Al Ghul, it certainly feels like Bruce Wayne’s past is coming back to haunt him in the final part of this trilogy.

We have to say congrats to Comic Book Movie who had this rumour back in February and claimed that the new movie would find Falcone returning to Gotham to reclaim the city Batman helped take away from his father. Perhaps then he is the one who hires Bane (Tom Hardy) to do his bidding and interestingly – in the Catwoman: When in Rome storyline,

Joseph Gordon-Levitt is Alberto Falcone in The Dark Knight Rises

Update: There’s word that Joseph Gordon-Levitt will Not play Alberto Falcone. Read more here.

Just one day ago we learned that Joseph Gordon-Levitt had officially joined the cast of The Dark Knight Rises. Now we know who the actor will portray in the third Batman film coming from Christopher Nolan. Variety reports Gordon-Levitt has signed on to play Albert Falcone, the son of Mafia head Carmine Falcone, the character that Tom Wilkinson played in Batman Begins.

Alberto Falcone is also known as “The Holiday Killer” and is based on Fredo Corleone of the Godfather series, but he also has certain traits similar also to Michael Corleone. The character is a very “realistic” one that fits the world Nolan has created for his version of Batman and Gotham City. He’s not like Mr. Freeze or Poison Ivy, like we saw from Joel Schumacher. Read more on the character Alberto Falcone after the jump.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt set, Juno Temple circling 'Dark Knight Rises'
After much speculation, Joseph Gordon-Levitt will officially reunite with his "Inception" director, Christopher Nolan, in the upcoming Batman sequel "The Dark Knight Rises," reports Variety. British actress ("Greenberg," "Kaboom") is in talks to join the cast. Although the role is being kept under wraps, Internet rumors have the "500 Days of Summer" actor playing everyone from the Riddler to masked assassin Deadshot to mafia heir Alberto Falcone (Tom Wilkinson played mob figurehead Carmine Falcone in 2005's "Batman Begins," whereas Eric Roberts appeared as a rival mob boss in 2008's "The Dark Knight").

Rumour: Joseph Gordon-Levitt Playing Alberto Falcone In The Dark Knight Rises?

Comic Book Movie have the worst track record of any film site on the internet for casting rumours, usually posting at least one false story per day (somebody once told me of the frightning policy they have of allowing anyone to publish a story with very little to no vetting going on) – however, I like what the rumour is suggesting, so I’m posting this as ‘something to think about as a possibility’. Or, something that would be cool rather than something that’s definitely happening.

So Cbm say they have heard from an anonymous source that Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s mysterious role in The Dark Knight Rises (which I hadn’t known was officially a done deal yet) is that of Alberto Falcone, the son of mob boss Carmine Falcone (played by Tom Wilkinson in Batman Begins) – a major character from Jeph Loeb’s The Long Halloween.

Six Viable Villains for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’

Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight Rises is gearing up for an April 2011 start date, meaning casting and character speculation has soared to an all-time high, along with expectations for the series’ third and final installment.

The late Heath Ledger raised the bar on comic book movie villains and injected chaos into Gotham with his chilling, Oscar-winning performance as the Joker. But how does Nolan, or anyone for that matter, follow that?

The idea of introducing The Riddler, played by Joseph Gordon-Levitt, was a juicy rumor for a time, serving the dual purpose of another sinister adversary whose mind games keep Batman on his toes yet divergent enough to create fresh situations for Bruce Wayne. But, alas, Nolan struck down that hearsay, along with the (scary) possibility of Mr. Freeze.

The return of Two-Face also seems unlikely considering his grisly plummet and Aaron Eckhart’s insistence he won’t be asked back for the sequel.
