Apparently, it takes a kiddie flick to get the mob back together — James Gandolfini (who played Tony Soprano, natch), Michael Imperioli (Christopher Moltisanti), Steve Schirripa (Bobby Bacala), Tony Sirico (Paulie Walnuts) and Vincent Curatola (Johnny Sack) are now all slated to make appearances in “Nicky Deuce,” a TV movie being filmed for Nickelodeon based on Schirripa’s children’s book of the same name.
According to Deadline, the film’s about Nicholas Borelli II (Noah Munck), a sheltered, geeky teenager who’s sent to spend the summer in Brooklyn with his uncle Frankie (Schirripa) and other members of the Italian-American side of his family he never knew he had, including a few who may be involved in some nefarious business affairs.
Gandolfini will play Bobby Eggs, “a two-bit guy from the neighborhood who gets unintentionally ‘scrambled’ by the young Nicky.” Per IMDb, the others “Soprano” alums have equally colorful names, with Imperioli playing “The Doctor,” Sirico as Charlie Cement and Vincent Curatola in the role of Paulie (because there has to be a Paulie, even if Sirico isn’t playing him).
“Nicky Deuce” will premiere on Nickelodeon next year.
