Soprano Sue's Sightings
 


Season 5 of The Sopranos, introduced a lot of new characters. One of the more notable ones, is Jerry Basile, who was introduced to us, in the Season 5 episode "Marco Polo".    Brilliantly portrayed by Garry Pastore, in which Carmine Jr. tells him, "You and I are gonna do big things together". Presently working on a few notable projects, "Mattie Fresno and the Holoflux Universe", and the new television series, "Jonny Zero", Garry's career is extensive.    Some of his movie credits include; "It had to be you", "Witness to the mob", "Donnie Brasco", "Dearly Beloved", "Carilto's Way", "A Bronx Tale", "Goodfellas".   Television credits include; "100 Centre Street" and "Crosby".    Once in a great while, I was able to catch up with Garry and ask him a few questions.

The movie, Cop land, I worked with so many talented actors on one film.
