Kathrine Narducci reports that “The Sopranos” actress Kathrine Narducci, who played Charmaine Bucco on the Jersey-set mob series, has been cast as Frankie Valli’s mother in Clint Eastwood’s adaptation of the popular musical JERSEY BOYS.

Ms. Narducci started her career playing Robert De Niro’s wife in “A Bronx Tale” before going on to a key supporting role opposite John Ventimiglia and James Gandolfini in “The Sopranos.” Since the success of that landmark series, Narducci has worked steadily in television, guest starring on shows including “Hung” and “Workaholics,” as well the “In Plain Sight” pilot. She also shot a short film with Gandolfini titled “A Whole New Day.”

  1. When I initially saw her picture, I thought, “Whoa. She seems REALLY young!” But undoubtedly, I’m sure the make-up team will take care of that. :) And besides, we don’t want someone who looks incredibly old either…
    I’m very excited to see the scenes from the Castelluccio household! In the Broadway show, Frankie’s family isn’t really portrayed…so this is gonna be great! NOW we can finally see and hear Frankie’s father telling his son, “I want you home by eleven!” Lol.
