Soprano’s Cast Angry at “Vito Spatafore” Actor For “Grandstanding” After James Gandolfini’s Death
An emotional week for friends and family of James Gandolfini. As preparations are being made for tomorrow's funeral, the cast of the Soprano's are fuming at Joe Gannascoli. Joe played Vito Spatafore (the gay gangster) in the HBO series. According to the New York Post, Gannascoli has turned Gandolfini's death into an opportunity to promote himself in tv, radio, and newspaper interviews. Apparently, the Sopranos cast members are disgusted, particularly because Gannascoli and Gandolfini weren't close friends at all...and they hadn't spoken in about 7 years.
