Rampart just got a whole lot sexier. Actor Steve Buscemi has joined the cast of the upcoming crime drama, which already includes Sigourney Weaver, Ice Cube, Woody Harrelson and Robin Wright. Buscemi, an obvious inspiration to Internet writers everywhere, will reportedly play the awesome ugly dude everybody likes even though he's ugly. The script for Rampart was written by Oren Moverman and novelist James Ellroy. Ellroy's involvement means that the film will be set in L.A., and will involve the LAPD, probably with a healthy dose of police corruption and racial slurs thrown in for good measure. Filming is set to begin in October. (Empire Online)

The New ‘Boardwalk Empire’ Trailer is a Gangster’s Paradise (Sans Coolio) http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/the-new-boardwalk-empire-trailer-is-a-gangsters-paradise-sans-coolio/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/the-new-boardwalk-empire-trailer-is-a-gangsters-paradise-sans-coolio/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 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) Watch the new "Boardwalk Empire" trailer after the jump...
