Much of “The Sopranos” cast are regrouping for roles in a new Nickelodeon TV Movie from series castmember Steve Schirripa, who co-wrote and stars. James Gandolfini, Michael Imperioli, Tony Sirico and Vincent Curatola all have parts in the film which “centers on Nicholas Borelli II (Noah Munck), a nerdy, over-protected teen who gets caught in the adventure of a lifetime when he is sent to Brooklyn to spend the summer with an uncle (Schirripa) and other members of his Italian American family he never knew he had. Confronted with some questionable dealings, Nicky uncovers family secrets and learns that the mean streets of Brooklyn aren’t always what they seem. In a comedic turn, Gandolfini, who shot his role over the weekend, will play Bobby Eggs, a two-bit guy from the neighborhood who gets unintentionally “scrambled” by the young Nicky.” (Deadline)
