The actor has closed a deal to appear in at least five episodes of the HBO drama's fourth season, which is in production for a premiere later this year.

In the season-three finale, Tonino was persuaded by Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi) to fatally stab Gyp, his superior, and then was told by Nucky to leave Atlantic City for good. With Gyp dead, Tonino appears to take on a bigger role under Joe "The Boss" Masseria (Ivo Nandi).

Kelly Macdonald and Michael Shannon also star in Empire, which is executive produced by Terence Winter, Martin Scorsese, Mark Wahlberg, Stephen Levinson, Tim Van Patten and Howard Korder. Gene Kelly is co-executive producer.

In addition to Empire, Caldovino's credits include The Sopranos and the upcoming movie The Wolf of Wall Street, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Matthew McConaughey and Jonah Hill. He is repped by Momentum Talent and manager Bob McGowan.
