Aida Turturro (Janice Soprano) joins Michael and Steve for this week’s hilarious episode of Talking Sopranos. Aida chats about her early days with James Gandolfini and how he had to put his clothes in garbage bags when he moved from place to place. But even back then Aida always said he was destined for greatness. When the role of Janice came up it was Jim, or James as she calls him, who put her up for the part. She said fate would determine if she got the role or not but either way Jim had to lend her rent money. Then Michael, Steve and Aida share a bunch of really funny behind the scenes stories you just have to hear. How Jim and Aida fought like brother and sister on set, the infamous chicken salad incident and a great story about Nancy Marchand.
Then Michael and Steve break down this week’s episode which is a big one for both their characters. They also talk about how the real life underground gambling business works and what it’s like to be a “Made Man”.
It’s all this week on Talking Sopranos Ep #29 “Fortunate Son” S3 Ep3. Remember to subscribe to the Talking Sopranos podcast wherever you get your podcasts and go to talkingsopranos.com to submit questions and hear Michael’s original music.
