Lillo Brancato Jr., a former bit actor on "The Sopranos," who served nearly a decade in prison for his involvement in a botched burglary that lead to the slaying of NYPD officer Daniel Enchautegui, will be interviewed by Matt Lauer on Wednesday's "Today," NBC announced Tuesday. [And now this: NBC just informed me the interview is still on - but won't air tomorrow, Wednesday, as previously announced. Reason? None given.]

Per NBC, "Brancato will speak out for the first time on television since his recent release from prison, where he served eight years" for attempted burglary.

Brancato, who played Matthew Bevilaqua, was released from Hudson Correctional Facility last week.
