Farewell, Eddie!
Posted 10/14/2013 4:17:00 PM

It's no secret that "Boardwalk Empire" is one of my favorite shows. The set-in-Jersey bio-drama (which is why I watch) has offered everything in its first few seasons; death, betrayal, murder, romance, and of course, GREAT Jersey references! But this season has saddened me a great deal with the death of Nucky's trustworthy assistant, Eddie. Here's a guy that took a bullet...literally...for his boss, and was one of the most stand-up guys on TV. Now with his guilt and shame-ridden suicide taking place, the show has lost a uniquely terrific character. But my blog this time isn't all about Eddie, but also about Anthony Laciura, the man who portrayed him. Anthony is a good friend, and as the accompanying photo shows, he has been on the show before. He's NOT an actor, yet managed to land one of the most attractive roles on TV. Thrown in your first acting gig being directed by Martin Scorcese, and here's a guy that lived the dream of thousands of others before him never did. He's an accomplished singer, as he showed in his swan-song episode. So no matter where this new season of Boardwalk Empire takes us, it just won't be the same without the ever-ready, and uber-didicated, Eddie. You'll be missed my friend!
