Scorsese and Buscemi team up for HBO pilot

by Billy Fisher


That's right friends, two of the best in the industry are going to be teaming up for our viewing pleasure. 

The Hollywood Reporter leased an article saying that Scorsese, along with his Departed star, Mark Wahlberg, will be producing a pilot for HBO called "Boardwalk Empire". The show will be about the birth of Atlantic City.  THR reports that Buscemi's character will be:

Nucky Johnson, a cunning businessman who runs a liquor distribution ring at the onset of Prohibition 

Also starring in the pilot will be Kelly Macdonald (No Country For Old Men; Trainspotting). 

Buscemi is no stranger to Television work. He has appeared and been nominated for Emmy's in such shows as "The Sopranos", and "30 Rock".      

There isn't really known too much about this pilot yet, but the combination of Buscemi and Scorsese intrigues me enough to make me want to watch it.  If any of you fellow soldiers know anything about this, let me know. Until then, let me know what you think.
