Remember how James Cameron is currently working on not one, not two, not three, but a ridiculous four Avatar sequels? Well, the franchise has moved to add another new name to its ranks.
The Avatar Twitter account has revealed that Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Edie Falco is joining the Avatar follow-ups as a character called General Ardmore. Falco, of course, is likely best known for the likes of The Sopranos and Nurse Jackie.
