Nucky Thompson’s got a new thorn in his side.

Boardwalk Empire has tapped Bobby Cannavale to join the Season 3 cast as a new rival to Steve Buscemi’s crime boss, our sister site Deadline.com reports.

Cannavale, who is coming off a season-long arc on Nurse Jackie, will play Gyp Rosetti, a charming but ruthless gangster who challenges Nucky.

  • Woah, is that really Bobby Cannavale?? He looks WAY different from what I remember from about a year ago. He looks much skinnier. Love him though!

  • How come I don’t remember Bobby Cannavale in Nurse Jackie? I’m a regular viewer and can’t place him. He should be interesting on Boardwalk Empire though.

  • So let’s see we lose “Jimmy Darmody” for “Trevor Pierce” maybe some of the fans right “Boardwalk Empire” is done after season 3.

  • Huge mistake killing off Jimmy, he was fabulous. Maybe some other actor didn’t want to share the lead role??? Why not make that a dream scene and bring him back..

  • I won’t be watching season 3 now that they killed Jimmy. His character made this series interesting.
