John Leguizamo has been cast as the lead in “Taxi-22,” a TV project actor James Gandolfini had been developing for over three years before his death in 2013.
Deadline first reported the casting news on Wednesday, adding that Gandolfini’s “passion project” had been looking for a lead actor for over a year.
Two weeks before ‘The Sopranos” star’s death in June 2013, CBS signed on to produce the comedy. The "Taxi-22" pilot will be an adaptation of the French-Canadian series created by Patrick Huard, who also starred in the show as the opinionated Montreal taxi driver.
