It turns out Brad Pitt wasn’t the only one who threatened to beat up super pervert Harvey Weinstein. Sopranos actor James Gandolfini had a severe dislike for the man, especially when he telephoned him bugging him with demands to do television interviews. Something the actor hated to do and only did one or two over the entirety of his career.
Now in a new podcast interview Steve Schirripa has revealed threats from Gandolfini to beat up the pervert. On the latest Joe Rogan show, he revealed:
“[Gandolfini] said, ‘Harvey Weinstein keeps calling, he wants me to do Letterman and I said no,’ and he got fucking nasty with Jim. And Jim said, ‘I will beat the fuck out of Harvey Weinstein! He fucking calls me again, I will beat the fuck out of him! For the money he paid me, I’m not fucking doing it!’ Swear to God. And this is before all the Harvey Weinstein shit when he was still king shit.”
Joe Rogan of course himself is in trouble this weekend with the woke brigade calling for his cancellaton. He laughed at something one of his guests said nine years ago, y’see…
Anyway, one of the best scenes in The Sopranos. An argument over a horse, but really Tony kills him to avenge a young mother Ralph had murdered.
