ABOUT BOARDWALK EMPIRE
The undisputed ruler of Atlantic City is Enoch “Nucky” Thompson, (Steve Buscemi) a political fixer and backroom dealer who is equal parts politician and gangster and equally comfortable in either role. Because of its strategic location on the seaboard, the town is a hub of activity for rum-runners, minutes from Philadelphia, hours from New York City and a day’s drive from Chicago. And Nucky Thompson takes full advantage.
Nucky has carved out a niche for himself as the man to see for any illegal alcohol. He is an equal opportunity gangster, doing business with Arnold Rothstein (Michael Stuhlbarg), Lucky Luciano, (Vincent Piazza) Al Capone (Stephen Graham), and Johnny Torrio (Greg Antonacci).
The show also stars Michael Kenneth Williams (‘The Wire’) as Chalky White, the leader of the city’s African-American community; Michael Shannon as Nelson Van Alden; Gretchen Mol as Gillian Darmody, an opportunistic ex-showgirl; Jack Huston as Richard Harrow, a maimed war veteran; Shea Whigham as Nucky’s resentful brother Eli; and Kelly Macdonald as Margaret, Nucky’s recent wife.
