Sopranos castoff will be in jail for a long time

tn_brancato_shaved_head2_cr.jpgI don’t know if this is supposed to be a horrific form of character research or some kind of death wish. Either way, Lillo Brancato Jr. won’t have to worry about sweating another audition for “The Sopranos.” Instead he’ll be sweating shower time in cell block B after getting arrested for not only attempted burglary, but also murder of an NYPD officer during a shootout in the Bronx. The good news is the cop nearly took Brancato and his sidekick out.

The wounded suspects were quickly captured. Investigators identified one as Lillo Brancato Jr., an actor who got his break in the Robert De Niro-directed film “A Bronx Tale” in 1993, and played doomed mob wannabe Matt Bevilacqua during the 1999-2000 season of “The Sopranos.”

Hopefully this assclown survives so “The Sopranos” can make an episode out of his execution. I’m sure James Gandolfini will have plenty of time to cook something up since that show puts out a new season as often as the World Cup.

UPDATE: Thanks to the help of our readers, I’ve discovered this guy was already offed on an episode of The Sopranos. Ok, I get it. Don’t ridicule me because I blew my plasma money on beanie babies instead of a subscription to HBO.
