Alec Baldwin opens up about sopranos’ dream role that eluded him – fitshopee

Alec Baldwin has revealed that he previously played a major role in HBO’s critically-acclaimed drama, The Sopranos.

The role the three-time Emmy winner hoped to bring to life was as the man who kills New Jersey mafia boss Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini), riding towards sunset with his wife, Carmela (Edie Falco) ).

“I called whoever it was… and I said… there’s only one man in this business who should come in, hit Jimmy and leave with Edie, and I’m that man,” se remembers the actor, during a conversation with Soprano co-stars Michael Imperioli and Steve Schirripa in a recent episode of their The sopranos who speak Podcast. “They were like, ‘Sure, great. We will add your name to the list of all Irish actors who think they should be on The Sopranos. “

In the end, Baldwin was never able to make an appearance on the series, despite knowing Gandolfini well, having worked with him on films including the 1996 legal thriller. swear, and plays, including A tram named Désir. Maybe it was just as well, because like any die-hard fan of The Sopranos know, we never see Tony die onscreen, or know what happened to him, in the end. The show sadly ends with an open cup in black, after Tony has sat down with his family in a restaurant.

Looking back, Baldwin believes an unexpected encounter with David Chase may have been responsible for his never being chosen. He told Imperioli and Schirripa that he had once met the Soprano designer in the bathroom of an LA restaurant. There, on a particularly hot day in Southern California, he was looking to dry his sweat-soaked suit, as he was late for a meeting. “I hold my shirt in front of the clothes dryer, and the door opens, and… this is my presentation of David Chase,” Baldwin explained. “Is he going, ‘Alec Baldwin? What are you doing drying your shirt in the bathroom at the Four Seasons restaurant? ‘ And I think on that basis alone, I was never chosen for your show.

Although the actor was never able to verify a Soprano turn off his bucket list, he still describes himself as a “superfan” of the series.
