Another great article.

Quote:
he Italian-American, New Jersey-raised Gandolfini came to the attention of casting director Susan Fitzgerald when she saw a clip of him playing a mob enforcer in the Quentin Tarantino-scripted True Romance – but Gandolfini did his best to sabotage his Sopranos audition.

In the middle of this audition he says: ‘This is s***. I gotta stop’,” recalled Chase, shortly after the actor’s death from a heart attack in 2013 at the age of 51. “And he left the room, went down the street and disappeared. And so another audition was set up. Then we heard someone in his family had died – when, in fact, no one had died.” Chase now thinks that Gandolfini might have been bipolar. “Finally, he came to my house, in my garage, and auditioned there. He did great – like we knew he would – and after I got to know him, I realised this was standard operating procedure for him.


David Chase reflects on The Sopranos as show turns 20
Gandolfini’s erratic behaviour was legendary – the actor would sometimes go missing for days on end, requiring expensive schedule rejigs. Off camera, he would keep to Tony’s famous dressing gown, desperate to stay in character. This intense identification had a powerful effect. Critics have written of feeling a strange need to be in Tony’s good books. “I got the sense that he was watching me as I wrote,” admitted Australian author and journalist Clive James, who reviewed the show in 2004, “so I tried hard to get it right, while always trying to remind myself, of course, that he wasn’t really a gangster, just an actor.”

I was lent the complete Sopranos box set by someone who insisted I gave it a go; I watched it...and then watched the whole lot again.

Utterly outstanding.
it's never been beaten yet; it's peerless, and still so watchable 20 years on.

The ending was left open. Quite why people are trying to pick the writer's brain is beyond me. HE DOESN'T KNOW. NOT A REAL EVENT.

Mind boggling.

Was just saying last night that it might be time for another rewatch. Amazing imo.

As the writer he does know tbf. Even if it is open ended he will know what REALLY happened as it's his mind.

You wouldn't be dumbdumb of the year if you didn't flat out contradict somebody who probably knows better.

I'm sorry: that is unless you have a background in creative writing of any capacity whatsofuckingever?
