NEW YORK, Feb. 25 (UPI) -- Actor Lillo Brancato has booked his first acting job since being released from prison late last year, the New York Post reported Tuesday.

Brancato, 37, is to star in pop singer Natali Yura "Fall For You" music video, which is being produced by Noel Ashman, a nightclub impresario who promised to help Brancato get a job after he left jail, the Post said.

Michael Bregman, the son of "Scarface" producer Martin Bregman, is directing the video featuring rapper Melle Mel.

Brancato, a former cast member of "The Sopranos" and co-star in "A Bronx Tale," was convicted of attempted burglary for his role in a 2005 botched Bronx burglary, which ended with his accomplice shooting and killing an off-duty police officer.

Brancato served eight years of a 10-year sentence, but was released early after agreeing to an unusual deal for which he will serve five years' parole with a 10 p.m. curfew.
