Brotherhood may ultimately be Tommy and Michael Caffey's story, but someone else stole the show last Sunday on the Showtime mob drama: Mayor Frank Panzerelli, who came out as gay in the third season premiere.
"I was like, 'Really? That's gonna be challenging, but it's gonna be fun,' Al Sapienza, who plays Panzerelli, tells TVGuide.com.
See what else the actor, currently starring on a stage production of Dirty Dancing, has to say about the revelation, how it will factor into this season's storylines, and why Brotherhood is (gasp!) better than The Sopranos in some ways.
TVGuide.com: The premiere was last week — some big revelations. How did the gay storyline develop?

The Brit, who shot behind-the-scenes footage for the Volume One DVD, in stores now, chatted with TVGuide.com about his dorky counterpart, the show's similarity to Jurassic Park, what it's like dating a pop star, and what's next in season three, premiering next year.
TVGuide.com: The show's developed a cult following here on BBC America, but I would say most people still don't know much about it. How would you describe it to American audiences?
Andrew-Lee Potts: Oh, god! I don't know. I suppose the easiest thing I can compare it to is ...
