The Soprano’s star Michael Imperioli, who played Christopher Moltisanti in the hit crime drama, will guest star in Greg Kinnear’s new show, Rake.

Rake is being adapted from an Australian TV series and will see Kinnear play a brilliant but flawed criminal defence lawyer.

Imperioli will play a restaurant owner who is charged with bigamy according to TV Line in an episode which will air in February.

The actor won an Emmy Award in 2004 for playing the drug-addicted Christopher in The Sopranos.
