'Boardwalk Empire': New season 4 trailer

Posted on

“I’m a middleman. I take orders. They do the rest. I don’t ask questions,” pleads a poor schlub at the beginning of this new full-length trailer for Boardwalk Empire.

Of course, nobody really cares about middlemen — which is why the clip quickly moves on to power players like Steve Buscemi’s Nucky Thompson, who may have a new and fearsome foe in Harlem boss Valentin Narcisse (Jeffrey Wright). “Only kings understand each other,” Narcisse says smoothly after reminding the gangster that he prefers to be addressed as “Doctor.” “What shall we do, Mr. Thompson?”

Elsewhere on the Empire: Carrie Bradshaw’s ex-boyfriend Jack Berger (a.k.a. Ron Livingston) has morphed into Roy Phillips, a wealthy outsider in town for mysterious reasons. Hopefully, he doesn’t date Gillian (Gretchen Mol), then dump her via Post-It. She’s got enough problems as it is — like a pesky judge demanding to know what occurred in her residence eight months ago.

Boardwalk Empire returns on HBO Sept. 8.
