“I’m going to beat the f-k from him!” For the money he paid me, I’m not f-king doing it! »»
James Gandolfini almost went full Tony Soprano on Harvey Weinstein. In a recent episode of the “The Joe Rogan Experience” podcast, Gandolfini’s co-stars in “The Sopranos”, Steve Schirripa and Michael Imperioli, recalled the moment when the actor was ready to beat the film tycoon by disgrace. Weinstein allegedly harassed Gandolfini for appearing in “The Tonight Show with David Letterman” to promote their 2012 film “Killing Them Softly”, but Gandolfini continued to refuse because he rarely did late night television interviews because he didn’t think not to itself as “interesting,” according to Schirripa. “He said, ‘Harvey Weinstein keeps calling, he wants me to do Letterman and I don’t do talk shows,'” Schirripa told host Joe Rogan. “And he became nasty f-king with Jim. And Jim said, ‘I’m going to beat the f-k out of Harvey Weinstein! He’s f-king calling me again, I’m going to beat the f-k out of it! For the money he paid me, I’m not f-king to do it! “” “Swear to God. And it was above all the Harvey Weinstein when he was still king, “added Schirripa. Imperioli explained that an explosion like this was not characteristic of Gandolfini, who did not look much like his character as crowd boss, Tony Soprano, from the HBO show. “He was like a hippie,” said Imperioli. “You know, he was very laid back. You know, he wore, like, Birkenstocks and, like, a bandana on his head. He didn’t really speak like that. “
Gandolfini died of a heart attack at the age of 51 in 2013. In March, Weinstein was sentenced in New York to 23 years in prison for third-degree rape and first-degree criminal sex. He is still awaiting trial in Los Angeles on a variety of charges, including forced rape, forced oral copulation, sexual intercourse using force, and coerced sexual violence.
