Damn you, TV upfront. Variety reported some TV casting news that seems to confirm that Adriana LaCerva will be killed off on the Sopranos. Why? Because Drea De Matteo landed a role on the Friends spin-off, "Joey," as Joey's high-strung sister, Gina! Our alternate hope is that David Chase's shooting schedule simply allows her to go to Hollywood to make a crappy sitcom. While it's safe to say she's the coolest thing to hit network TV in a while, Jesus, Gothamist doesn't know if that's career suicide in a punchline or a great way to make some Hollywood cash. Probably a little of both. At least she'll still have Filth Mart.
But speaking of Drea, her Prey for Rock & Roll co-star
Gina Gershon is going to be on network TV this fall, too. She plays the wild and sexy titular "Hot Mom" with a conservative daughter (imagine that!), and somehow, Nick Lachey will be in the show as well.
