Gandolfini Joins Wonderstone Cast
08 Dec 2011    

By Lucas Allen (Web correspondent)

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, James Gandolfini (formerly Tony Soprano from The Sopranos) has joined the cast of the new comedy "Burt Wonderstone" with Steve Carrell and Jim Carrey. He will play a billionaire owner of a Las Vegas casino. The actor has met with magicians and different casino owners while researching the part.

In the film, Carrell plays the title character, a washed-up Las Vegas magician who tries to make a comeback while competing with a rival magician (played by Carrey). Two more actors previously joined the film including Steve Buscemi (Boardwalk Empire) as Wonderstone’s former magic partner, and Olivia Wilde (Cowboys & Aliens) as Wonderstone’s assistant and love interest.
