The gang was (almost) all there for the premiere of HBO's new Jersey crime epic Boardwalk Empire — the Sopranos gang, that is. Former cast members including James Gandolfini, Steven Van Zandt, Tony Sirico, Vincent Curatola and Aida Turturro as well as creator David Chase showed up for Boardwalk's splashy New York premiere on Sept. 15 thanks to its multiple Sopranos connections. After all, the series stars Steve Buscemi, who played Tony's inept cousin, and was created by Terence Winter, an Emmy-winning writer for The Sopranos.
