Goodfellas: The Sneaker
Looks like "Jersey Shore," "Boardwalk Empire," and "Cake Boss" are going to have to think twice if any were hoping to be the heir apparent to the "Sopranos" legacy. Deadline reports today that there are plans underway for a Goodfellas television series.
Quick question, why? The original is a high watermark in the world of film, and even if the show turns out to be primo, it can’t measure up to its predecessor. The only way to do this right, is a longshot. They need to cast Ray Liotta. It’s not like he won’t do television. His turn as Principal Luger in "Hannah Montana" Season Four, Episode Two "Hannah Montana to the Principal’s Office" proved that.
