Marvel Television has added Annabella Sciorra to the second season of Luke Cage. Sciorra, best know for her work on the The Sopranos, will be play Rosalie Carbon. The character is described as, “a dangerous downtown criminal underworld power player with an eye, and an agenda, toward Harlem.”
Showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker is excited to add Sciorra to the cast.
“I’ve been a huge fan of hers since Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever, and Annabella Sciorra is no joke as Rosalie Carbone. You haven’t seen her this gangster since her thrilling turn as Tony’s formidable flame Gloria Trillo on Season 3 of The Sopranos. I’m thrilled her introduction to the Marvel Universe will be on Marvel’s Luke Cage.
Sciorra was always great on The Sopranos and I’m looking forward to seeing what she brings to Marvel on Netflix. Even bulletproof skin may not be enough when Luke Cage (Mike Colter) tries to stand in her way.
Luke Cage season two premiers on Netflix on June 22.
