John Turturro - John Turturro Replaces Robert De Niro In James Gandolfini's Tv Role

Actor John Turturro is stepping in for Robert De Niro on new Tv mini-series Criminal Justice, after the Oscar winner replaced James Gandolfini following his death last year (Jun13).

In September (13), the Raging Bull legend signed on to take over the lead role from Gandolfini, who starred in the pilot.

Due to scheduling issues, De Niro has been forced to bow out of the series. Turturro has now been cast to play New York City attorney Jack Stone, according to Deadline.com.

Turturro has links to both actors - he has previously starred alongside De Niro in four films, while Gandolfini appeared in 2005's Romance & Cigarettes, which was written and directed by Turturro.

Gandolfini developed the U.S. adaptation of Peter Moffatt's acclaimed 2008 Bbc drama of the same name, and will posthumously be credited as a producer.
