They don't call him Joey Pants for nothing. Former Sopranos star Joe Pantoliano will join the cast of How to Make It in America for the second season in a recurring role, reports Deadline. In addition to Pantoliano, the comedy series will feature former ER star Eriq La Salle in a guest capacity as well.

Pantoliano will play Felix Di Florio, the father of the recently cast Nicole Laliberte, a "protective father and powerful artist." As for La Salle, he's likely to feature with Luis Guzman's Rene; he'll play a Jamaican community leader upset with one of Rene's business ventures.

The second season of How to Make It In America will air later this year on HBO. That gives you time to buy a fresh pair of jeans for the big debut.
