Annabella Sciorra (“Jungle Fever,” “The Sopranos”) has been cast as a major villain in the second season of Netflix’s original series “Luke Cage”.
Sciorra plays Rosalie Carbone, a dangerous downtown criminal underworld power play with an agenda toward Harlem. The character fits in with the darker tone the upcoming second season will reportedly have.
In the new episodes Luke Cage (Mike Colter), after clearing his name, has become a celebrity on the streets of Harlem with a reputation as bulletproof as his skin. But being so visible has only increased his need to protect the community and find the limits of who he can and can’t save. With the rise of a formidable new foe, Luke is forced to confront the fine line that separates a hero from a villain.
“Luke Cage” season two will hit Netflix on June 22nd.
