And he’s probably right.
It’s going to be like one of those series where the kids never leave high school, only the kids are bootleggers and the high school is prohibition.

Hollywood patted itself on the back this past weekend with both the 2011 Director’s Guild of America Awards and the Screen Actor’s Guild 2011 Awards. Also, Scott Bakula made pimping look easy.
As it turns out, Huston is the grandson of famed director John Huston, and the nephew of actress Angelica Huston. Looking back, the resemblance is uncanny. You can really see it in his eye.

Where the roaring 1920s lights of a F. Scott Fitzgerald novel meet with the violent crime sagas of a Scorsese classic, this what you can find in the fast-paced and explosive new gangster series “Boardwalk Empire.”
On the eve of 1920 with his pockets full of cash and liquor in a high demand due to prohibition, Enoch 'Nucky' Thompson (played with tough talk and weak posture by Steve Buscemi) is at the top of his game as the Treasurer over the swinging and swindling lights of Atlantic City. Thompson has everything in place to create Atlantic City as the speakeasy capital of the world but as high stakes prove he has a lot more coming this way as the infamous decade will come of age in gangster warfare, political upheaval, and a crash and burn economy.

"Who the hell are you to tell me what to do?"
HBO has released a behind the scenes look at their highly anticipated new drama "Boardwalk Empire." The show is executive produced by Terence Winter ("The Sopranos") and Martin Scorsese, who also directed the pilot. Steve Buscemi plays the undisputed ruler of Atlantic City and town Treasurer, Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, who is described as “a political fixer and backroom dealer who is equal parts politician and gangster and equally comfortable in either role.”
Cutting to the chase, it's going to be some old school gangsta sh*t from the mind of a "Soprano's" writer and Scorsese. We've all been waiting for the next compelling drama from HBO (if you're a girl, I know you think that's "True Blood," but it isn't), and I have no doubt that "Boardwalk Empire" will make our Sunday nights a little less depressing. Then the next morning you can go into the office and give your boss the high hat and Charleston your way out of that joint.

HBO's New "Boardwalk Empire" trailer is like an all-star lineup of prohibition-era gangsters. "Lucky" Luciano, Arnold "The Brain" Rothstein, "Papa Johnny" Torrio, "Big Jim" Colosimo, and even a still small-time "Scarface Al" Capone all make an appearance in this epic new series.
Staring Steve Buscemi as a corrupt Atlantic City Councilman, the Martin Scorsese directed project chronicles the rise of bootlegging during the early 1920's.
While the trailer looks awesome, I couldn't help but notice the absence of noted gangster Moe Greene. This was a great man, a man of vision and guts. And there isn't even a plaque, or a signpost or a statue of him in that town! (Movie Line)
