Tony Soprano’s onetime flame is going to try her own hand at the organized crime thing, with a juicy role on Marvel’s Luke Cage.
Annabella Sciorra has boarded Season 2 of the Netflix superhero series as Rosalie Carbone, a dangerous downtown criminal underworld power player with an eye — and an agenda — aimed at Luke’s stomping ground of Harlem.
Sciorra joins returning cast members Mike Colter, Simone Missick, Alfre Woodard and Theo Rossi.
“I’ve been a huge fan of hers since Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever, and Anabella Sciorra is no joke as Rosalie Carbone,” showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker said in a statement. “You haven’t seen her this gangster since her thrilling turn [on The Sopranos]. I’m thrilled her introduction to the Marvel Universe will be on Marvel’s Luke Cage.”
In addition to her role as The Sopranos‘ Gloria, Sciorra’s previous TV credits include Law & Order: Criminal Intent, The L Word and Chris Vance’s Mental, plus appearances on Blue Bloods, CSI and, most recently, Bull.
Luke Cage‘s 13-episode sophomore run is set to release on Friday June 22.
