Gandolfini Says He Has ‘Useless Temper’
NEW YORK (AP) _ James Gandolfini says unlike Tony Soprano, he has a ``useless temper.″ The actor who plays the violent mob boss on HBO’s ``The Sopranos,″ is currently shooting the sixth and final season of the show, but reminisces about the formulation of the iconic character on CBS’s ``60 Minutes Wednesday,″ (8 p.m. ET).
``I have a little bit of a temper, but it’s ... a useless temper,″ Gandolfini says. ``It doesn’t accomplish anything, generally. It’s just a lot of ranting and raving and nothing, so David (Chase) probably saw that and put it into the character.″
``You know, all writers are vampires and ... they’ll look around and they watch you when you’re not even thinking they’re watching you and they’ll slip stuff in.″
Chase, the creator and writer of ``The Sopranos,″ has kept a tight lid on the story lines for the new season _ which is sure to elicit endless speculation on who gets whacked.
``One of the things I like about doing this show is that you can kill people off, and it helps with my problem, which is I get bored with things really easily,″ says Chase.
One major character that could bite the bullet is Tony Soprano’s wife, Carmela, played by Edie Falco. Though the two feuded considerably in the last season, Falco doesn’t see it happening.
``That would be unlikely,″ she says. ``Who would cook?″
