James Gandolfini To Star In New HBO Series?

| Filed under: TV News



HBO is partnering up with James Gandolfini of The Sopranos fame to develop a US version of French Canadian comedy Taxi-22.

The show is about a politically incorrect cab driver in New York City who is "struggling to keep his life together."

James could probably pull off that role. He does brooding well!

What do U think?

    OMG!!!! I love this show and it's something great for them. The only thing I'm not sure, it's the sense of humor they gonna use in the american version…Because in quebec, the french have a special humor and this show it's exactly this type…

    But I'm gonna wait to see the fisrt episode to said something about!

    He is such a fantastic actor… I can't wait to see this new show.
    I was worried I wouldn't like Nurse Jackie because Edie Falco was so fantastic as Carmella, but damn she's good, and she's TOTALLY Nurse Jackie now. I hope the same successful outcome for Gandolfini; it all depends on the script and production. He seems like he was willing to wait for the right role to come along, rather than cash in on his Sopranos success with 2nd rate material which I am sure he was offered.
    The only problem with The Sopranos, is that I am sure it spoiled him, and it's hard to find anything of similar quality.
    You know, that brilliant actor who played the ticket seller at the Jewell concert ought to get a series. :D

    I would watch him reading the Manhattan phone book.
