The evil Richie Aprile (David Proval) joins Michael and Steve for this week’s episode of Talking Sopranos. David is an emotional guest who talks about his incredible career, his big break with Martin Scorsese on Mean Streets, and how he got the gig on the Sopranos. He also shares an amazing story about his first audition with James Gandolfini, and how he used his anger and rage at the entertainment industry to create Richie’s Aprile’s character.
Michael and Steve also talk about actors and entertainers who worked their whole lives to become what seemed like an overnight success….It ain’t easy folks!
Then Michael and Steve break down this week’s episode which is definitely a shocker! Audiences were stunned when Janice pulled the trigger and lots to unpack 20 years later. Both David Proval and Aida Turturro deserved Emmys for this one. Don’t miss Talking Sopranos Ep #25 “The Knight in White Satin Armor”.
