Four mobsters from “The Sopranos” will have an on-camera reunion next year in a rather unlikely place — Nickelodeon.
Steve Schirripa, Michael Imperioli, Tony Sirico and Vincent Curatola will all have roles in “Nicky Deuce,” a Nick movie starring “iCarly’s” Noah Munck and based on a children’s book Schirripa co-wrote. Rita Moreno also stars in the film, along with “Degrassi: The Next Generation” veterans Cristine Prosperi and Cassius Creightney.
“Nicky Deuce” stars Munck as a teenager whose plans to attend math camp go awry and who ends up spending the summer with his uncle (Schirripa) in Brooklyn. He acquires a (false) reputation as a tough guy soon after arriving and has to figure out how to live up to the label.
Imperioli, Sirico and Curatola will all play characters that harken back to their roles on “The Sopranos.”
“Nicky Deuce” is based on a children’s book of the same name Schirripa wrote with Charles Fleming. Schirripa is also among the executive producers of the film, which is set to air sometime in 2013 on Nickelodeon.
