Daniel Baldwin has been hired for a potential recurring role in the final episodes of HBO’s Emmy-winning mob drama “The dbald Sopranos.”

Baldwin will play the star of the horror movie that aspiring filmmaker Christopher (Michael Imperioli) has been working on.

Described by Christopher as “‘Saw’ meets ‘Godfather 2,”‘ the project centers on “a wiseguy with a big mouth and bigger dreams,” as Christopher introduced it to potential investors in an episode this year.

In the same episode, Christopher’s posse kidnapped screenwriter JT, a recovering addict and degenerate gambler. At a back-seat meeting with Christopher, JT gets an offer he can’t refuse — to write the script based on Christopher’s idea in exchange of the settlement of his gambling debts.

Four episodes later, Christopher went to Los Angeles to meet with Ben Kingsley for the lead. Kingsley passed on the script.

The role now will go to Baldwin.

Filming is under way on the final eight episodes of “Sopranos,” which are slated to air early next year.

“Homicide” alumnus Baldwin’s recent credits include the Showtime film “Our Fathers” and the feature “Searching for Mickey Fish.”
