Nurse Jackieis staging a Sopranos reunion.

The Showtime dramedy starring Edie Falco has enlisted her former Sopranos co-star Aida Turturro for a guest turn in Season 4 alongside Oscar winner Joel Grey.

While details on Turturro's "pivotal" one-episode Jackie role are being kept under wraps, she is no stranger to going head-to-head with Falco as her Sopranos character, Janice, would regularly clash with her sister-in-law Carmela (Falco) on HBO's award-winning drama.
