Just a quick something about James Gandolfini. I heard him interviewed by David Lee Roth today, and there was a part something like:
Gandolfini: "You know, when I was first offered the role, I worried that it would cast Italian-Americans in a bad light."
Roth: "So, how did you deal with that?"
Gandolfini: "Well Dave, I made 13 million dollars last year. I'll worry about the rest later on."
It was weird though, hearing "Tony Soprano" talking without that thick accent.
