That much-rumored “Sopranos” movie may be sleeping with the fishes for now, but Edie Falco said she’d happily glue on those acrylic nails again for another whack at Carmela.
“I would definitely be interested in being involved,” Falco, who played Tony Soprano’s wife on the hit HBO series, told The Hollywood Reporter.
“I would be fine if it never happened, but I would also love to go back there and see all the people I love again," Falco said. "Who knows? I'm not the one making the decisions and I would jump at the chance to participate.”
The industry has been buzzing about a big-screen version of “The Sopranos” ever since the show ended its six-season run in 2007. “Frankly, I think it's not going to materialize,” said the 47-year-old star, “but stranger things have happened.”
In the meantime, Falco is content playing Showtime’s “Nurse Jackie,” a character who is much more low-maintenance than Carmela. “I'm spending less time in hair and makeup,” she noted.
And when it comes to which fellow Emmy-nominee’s character she’d want to take on, Falco, who has appeared on NBC’s “30 Rock,” said, “Tina Fey as Liz Lemon."
Fey "is such an immense talent," Falco went on. "I just want to be on that set. There is this great goofing around that goes on between Tracy Morgan and Alec Baldwin. I've spent time there and it's just ridiculously fun. Everyone laughs and that's such a nice thing to have during the workday.”
