'Sopranos' actor joins cast of Bradenton-shot sitcom pilot 'Workers' Comp'

David Proval, best known for his role on television's "The Sopranos" and movies such as "The Shawshank Redemption" and "Mean Streets," has been added to the cast of "Workers' Comp."

He will play a character with a questionable background named Joe Basq.

The TV show pilot “Workers’ Comp,” a comedy about zany employees dealing with weird insurance claims, stars Morgan Fairchild and Robert Carradine.

Most of “Workers’ Comp” will be shot in Bradenton later this month.

Executive Producer Dori Sperko and producer David Sauers ("Taking Woodstock") confirmed today at VADAR Productions in Bradenton that Proval had committed to the project.

"Workers' Comp" co-creators Castille Landon (who also co-stars on the show) and Harrison Sanborn (who's directing) were also present at VADAR being interviewed for an upcoming feature story.
