Edie Falco on 'Sopranos' movie: Stranger things have happened

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.”

    Not really sure if those who criticized the last seaon of Sopranos actually saw the last season of the Sopranos. As someone who never missed an episode, and having watched the entire DVD series again this past summer, I can say the last season was brilliant! If you didn't come to understand the writing style over the years, then the last season probably confused and disappointed you.

    I'd love to see a movie. Pick up on the family years later, after Tony does prison time and is divorced from Carmella. Maybe AJ is running the family, or have Meadow somehow get pulled into mob life. There's quite a few directions it could take. But, I wouldn't count on it any time soon.

    I would like it if they made a movie. The last season was bad. Writing new scripts on a schedule has got to the be downfall of a LOT of shows. When Tony was on the "Dream Sequence" episodes when Junior shot him, I couldn't watch that crap. They "Jumped the Shark" then. Suicide for ANY show.

    BUT, if they had plenty of time to write a good script, I would definitely like to see it.

    I grew up there, and the Mob guys were cool guys in the neighborhood. NOBODY got 'Wacked" who didn't deserve it. NO Civilians ever got "Wacked" either. Just Mob justice. I tended bar in a few of their nightclubs. BEST bosses I ever had. They paid me DOUBLE the going rate, and in CASH. As long as you don't steal from them (and I didn't) they are stand up guys.

    Nurse Jackie rocks & 30 Rock does not! When did Alec Baldwin say he would retire? Tina=over exposed. Tracy=lousy on SNL no better on the Rock.

    I would love some kind of reunion show with all the major and some sub major characters. Maybe Oprah can do it since next year would be her last. I loved the Sopranos and miss the show, but I don't want a movie. Even though I was mad at the way it ended, there shouldn't be a movie. Just leave it the way it ended. Oh well, I'll just hope for a reunion show.

    I'm not sure what the point of a movie would be. The show had a perfect ending. Those who wanted to see Tony pay for his crimes.. could see that happening. Those who were sympathetic to him, could see him going on to live a full life. I loved the show as much as the next guy.. but there's nothing a movie could do that would improve on the memories of it.

    Let it be.

    If David Chase was doing the movie, then you would likely be paying for a waste of time...just like the final season of the show

    A Soprano's movie would be stupid. The show was getting real boring the last season anyway. I know I wouldn't pay $10.00 to see it. It really would be too predictable and that's why a movie like that would never happen .
