Steve Buscemi as a tough guy mobster who kills people for profit and grabs some prostitute lovin’ whenever he feels like it? More, please! Check out a preview trailer for HBO’s new period gangster show, “Boardwalk Empire”. If it’s anything like HBO’s “Deadwood” or “Rome”, then this thing’s got major potential. Hey, having Martin Scorsese direct your pilot and stay on as a producer doesn’t hurt, either; I believe he knows a little bit about the mob life.
Chronicles the life and times of Nucky Thompson, the undisputed ruler of Atlantic City, who was equal parts politician and gangster.
The cast includes Steve Buscemi, Michael Kenneth Williams, Stephen Graham, Michael Stuhlbarg, Joseph Riccobene, Michael Shannon, and Michael Pitt.
Look for it over at HBO on September 19, 2010.
