Henry Hill To Play Poker With Tony Soprano

Tuesday, February 15 by

You might have already read a little about the casting of the Andrew Dominik‘s puh-puh-puh poker movie Cogan’s Trade. You may have also thought to yourself that the cast, which comprises Brad Pitt, James Gandolfini, Javier Bardem, Sam Rockwell, Casey Affleck, Mark Ruffalo, and others, while solid, was lacking a bit of vague weirdness. If so, you’ll be happy to hear that the reigning king of vague weirdness Ray Liotta is the latest actor to sign on to the movie:

“Liotta will play Mark ‘Markie’ Trattman, the unfortunate hustler who runs the game in a motel room and finds things only going downhill from there.”

Between Henry Hill and Tony Soprano, this is shaping up to be a new gangster classic. Maybe they can get some Vanilla Ice on the soundtrack! (via The Hollywood Reporter)
