Actor Lillo Brancato, Jr. has reportedly dropped out of a starring role in singer Natali Yura's new music video to take on a part in a "major movie".

The music video gig was set to be the former The Sopranos star's first acting job since his early release from prison in December (13) following a stint behind bars for his role in a bungled 2005 burglary, which resulted in the death of an off-duty police officer.

Brancato, Jr. was scheduled to begin production on the video this weekend (15-16Mar14), but he has now been replaced by The Bone Collector's Mike MCGlone, according to the New York Daily News.

No other details about his movie role have been released.
