Joe Pantoliano is headed back to HBO and he's taking that really serious guy from "ER" with him.

Pantoliano and Eriq La Salle have signed on for the second season of HBO's comedy series, "How To Make It In America." The show, about a group of young hustlers in the New York, will feature Joey Pants as an influential New York artist who is also the overprotective father of Nicole Laliberte's character. La Salle will let his soul glo as a Jamaican community activist who will interfere with Luiz Guzman's business. Probably to the response of, "Aw, Hell naw. Thaft's my bidness he interfering wiff."
