VOTE TALKING SOPRANOS THE BEST PODCAST IN FILM AND TV AT THE WEBBY AWARDS!
This week on Talking Sopranos Michael and Steve welcome Maureen Van Zandt (Gabriella Dante)to the podcast. Maureen shares stories about her days with Jimi Hendrix, Tony Sirico, the Beatles and growing up in a Mafia family. She also talks about how Georgianne Walken asked her to audition for the part of Gabriella. She thought it would be weird if she got it, or didn’t get it but in the end was the perfect choice for the role.
Then Michael and Steve go through some of the weird phone numbers they have plugged in their phones. Steve has lots of priests, celebs and an old hooker named Grandma Gums….maybe Great Grandma Gums by now.
After that the guys get into this week’s episode which was a big one for Michael. It’s one of the two episodes that HBO submitted to the Academy for his Emmy win. Michael and Drea are absolutely fantastic in this episode and Michael talks about all their scenes in detail. Check out Talking Sopranos Ep #58 S5 – Ep 5 “Irregular Around the Margins”.
