HBO’s "Boardwalk Empire" has cast an actor known for his role in "Third Watch" to play a brutal gangster, reports EW.com’s Inside TV blog.

Bobby Cannavale will play Gyp Rosetti, a gangster who challenges Nucky, played by Steve Buscemi, for control of the bootlegging business, the story says. The third season of the show will jump forward to 1923, a period when stockpiled booze supplies were beginning to run out and competition intensified in the illegal alcohol trade, according to the piece.

Cannavale is known for his role as Bobby Caffey on NBC’s “Third Watch,” and also had a recurring role on “Will & Grace” that won him an Emmy in 2005.
