More and more I believe that, it's not that James Gandolfini is such a great actor, but was that he was simply playing a version of himself in the The Sopranos.
The surly actor copped a major attitude yesterday when a fan greeted him in the airport. Granted, the Tony-lover was a bit annoying, asking over and over again, "Can I be a Soprano, baby?" but did it call for a violent reaction from James? I think not.
According to PageSix.com, after the super fan asked to be part of the family for a second time, James "grabbed the guy around the collar and got up in his face before tossing him aside like a rag doll."
Inside of running for his life, like I would have done, the guy whined, "Yo, why'd you hit me? I'm here to greet you, congratulate you on the SAG award; I'm just trying to figure out how to be a Soprano. You whacked me."
To which James shot back, "That's how."
Okay, then. I'm officially terrified of him.
