Michael Shannon, an Oscar nominee for “Revolutionary Road,” has been hired by HBO to co-star in the pilot of Martin Scorsese’s “Boardwalk Empire,” the Hollywood Reporter says. Shannon will play a Treasury Department senior agent charged with nipping bootlegging in Atlantic City, N.J., during prohibition. Vincent Piazza was cast as the young Lucky Luciano, the trade paper says.
