Cameras will roll Saturday when Dominic “Uncle Junior” Chianese gathers with a gang of tough guys in New York.
No, he isn’t filming the next season of “Sopranos” episodes. Chianese will act alongside hip-hop/R&B group Full Force and a posse that will include Silkk the Shocker and newcomer Bam-Buë.
The diverse crew is shooting the video for “Float On With Us,” the first single from Full Force’s recently released Still Standing.
In the video, Chianese plays an elderly man who is lying in bed with his wife when they are disturbed by loud music coming from a club down the street. After his wife demands he stop the music, Chianese goes to the club in his pajamas and instead becomes “the man of the hour,” according to Full Force’s publicist.
Other guests may also be on hand for the shoot, the publicist said. Shocker and Bam-Buë rap along with Funkmaster Flex, Method Man and Allure on one of the album’s two “Float On With Us” mixes. The other version features Montell Jordan, Ginuwine, Kevon Edmonds and Gerald Levert.
Still Standing includes seven new Full Force songs and several past hits produced or performed during the group’s 15-year career. Tracks include ‘NSYNC’s “I Just Wanna Be With You” (with additional lyrics from Da Brat), the Backstreet Boys’ “All I Have to Give,” U.T.F.O.’s “Roxanne, Roxanne,” Lisa Lisa and Cult Jam’s “I Wonder If I Take You Home” and James Brown’s “Static” (see “‘NSYNC, Backstreet Boys Represent For Full Force” ).
Chianese recently released an album of his own, the folk-flavored Hits (see “‘The Sopranos’ ‘ Uncle Junior Gets Musical Revenge” ).
