De Niro takes Gandolfini TV role
Robert De Niro will step into a TV project thrown into question by the death of Sopranos star James Gandolfini.
HBO said De Niro was taking on the role of a New York City lawyer handling a murder case in the mini-series Criminal Justice.
Gandolfini had played the lawyer in the pilot episode before his death at 51 in June after suffering a heart attack.
Criminal Justice was one of Gandolfini's last projects. Another is the film Enough Said, which is now in cinemas.
