BONUS: Interview With Joe Gannascoli (Vito Spatafore)

What Do You Know, What Do You Say to Joe Gannascoli?

In just six short seasons, Pod Yourself A Gun has gone from the only Sopranos podcast to the only Sopranos podcast to get an interview with the actor who played Gino in season one episode eight, “The Legend of Tennessee Moltisanti.” Remember? Christopher cuts him in line, and he gets all huffy about it? The actor’s name is Joseph R. Gannascoli, and you might also remember for his other work in the series, as the character performing the most surprising felatio history of television, Vito Spatafore.

In the latest Patreon-exclusive edition of PYAG, Matt and Vince talk to the man who played the man who killed Jackie Jr., lost a bunch of weight, got caught lassoing leather daddies, and ate Johnny Cakes in New Hampshire. During the conversation, Joe reveals how much of his own life was incorporated into the character, the book that inspired Vito’s gay storyline, and who the biggest ballbusters were on set.

Along with all the inside dirt on The Sopranos cast and crew, the conversation covers Joe’s fascinating journey from self-taught chef and self-proclaimed degenerate gambler to self-taught actor to golfing dad with two christmas trees.
