‘Elementary’ Welcomes ‘Goodfellas’ Actor Paul Sorvino, ‘Sopranos’ Alum


Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) better watch their backs, because some big bad mafia bosses are joining their CBS hit series ‘Elementary.’

‘Elementary’ Welcomes ‘Goodfellas’ Actor Paul Sorvino, ‘Sopranos’ AlumAccording to TVLine, who first broke the news, Paul Sorvino (‘Law & Order,’ ‘Still Standing’) is set to guest star in a Season 2 episode. It seems he will channel his inner ‘Goodfellas’ role, as he’ll portray a mob boss. However, he won’t be on his own, as ‘The Sopranos’ and ‘The Good Wife’ actor Vincent Curatola has also snagged a role as a crime lord.

Executive producer Rob Doherty describes the two as “the heads of two warring families.” In the hour-long episode, the story will explore “the state of the Mafia in New York City in 2013.”

These roles don’t sound too far-fetched for Sorvino and Curatola. As ‘Sopranos’ fans know, Curatola portrayed Johnny “Sack” Sacrimoni on the HBO series. As for Sorvino, he’s quite popular for his role as Paul Cicero in ‘Goodfellas.’ I’d say these two are going to do wonders as some rough and tough mob bosses.

So far, the sophomore season of ‘Elementary’ has showcased some fabulous guest stars, including Rhys Ifans as Sherlock’s brother, Mycroft, Laura Benanti and William Sadler.

Are you excited to see Sorvino and Curatola extend their acting roots to ‘Elementary’?

‘Elementary’ returns to the small screen on Thursday, Jan. 2 at 10/9c on CBS.

"Are you excited to see Sorvino and Curatola extend their acting roots to ‘Elementary’?" I'm excited that you can not write an article without ending in a question. That makes either yourself or the editing staff vapid and shallow.
