‘Luke Cage’ season 2 adds ‘The Sopranos’ star Annabella Sciorra as Rosalie Carbone

The Sopranos star Annabella Sciorra has signed on to the Season 2 cast of Marvel’s Luke Cage on Netflix.

Sciorra will play “Rosalie Carbone, a dangerous downtown criminal underworld power player with an eye, and an agenda, toward Harlem.”

She joins returning cast including, Mike Colter (Luke Cage), Simone Missick (Misty Knight), Alfre Woodard (Mariah Dillard), and Theo Rossi (Hernan ‘Shades’ Alvarez).

In Marvel’s Luke Cage, after clearing his name, Luke Cage (Colter) has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But being so well known has only increased the pressure he feels to protect the community. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.

EW first reported the news, noting that “Sciorra had a season-long arc on HBO’s The Sopranos, starred in Jungle Fever, and also has a recurring role on the upcoming second season of Netflix’s G.L.O.W. Sciorra was also recently in the news after being one of the actresses to speak out against Harvey Weinstein.

“I’ve been a huge fan of hers since Spike Lee’s Jungle Fever, and Anabella Sciorra is no joke as Rosalie Carbone,” says Luke Cage showrunner Cheo Hodari Coker. “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.”

“We couldn’t be happier to be working with such an incredible talent,” added Marvel TV head Jeph Loeb. “This character is complex and layered and Annabella is the perfect actress to portray her.”

Luke Cage star Mike Colter recently teased that season 2 will be “a little darker than season 1 … it’s so relevant that it feels like this is what would happen if superheroes were walking around the street. This is what it would be like… a lot more fighting. I’m going to be squared off against a lot of people.”

Luke Cage returns on June 22.
