'Nurse Jackie' Sets 'Sopranos' Reunion
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.
Turturro picked up a SAG Award and a pair of Emmy noms for her turn as Janice. Her credits include Curb Your Enthusiasm, Medium and ER.
Meanwhile, Grey will guest star as a patient suffering from dementia in an episode of the series' fourth season, which is currently in production in New York.
Grey's credits include the stage and feature versions of Cabaret as well as Private Practice, Grey's Anatomy and Alias. He most recently co-directed the Tony-winning revival of The Normal Heart and is starring on Broadway in Anything Goes.
The pair joins a Season 4 cast that has added Bobby Cannavale and Rosie Perez as guest stars.
