Sopranos Creator Honors James Gandolfini at the Late Actor's Funeral

During Thursday's funeral service for James Gandolfini, The Sopranos' creator David Chase read a letter to the late actor as his eulogy.

"When I said before that you were my brother, this has a lot to do with that: Italian-American, Italian worker, builder, that Jersey thing — whatever that means — the same social class," Chase said at the 90-minute ceremony held in New York's Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine, according to Hitfix. read more

Dominic Chianese to Stroll on Boardwalk

The last time many viewers saw Dominic Chianese, his legendary Sopranos alter ego, Corrado "Junior" Soprano, was languishing with senile dementia in a rest home. This fall will find him substantially more compos mentis in the second season of HBO's Boardwalk Empire, which premieres September 25. According to the show's creator/executive producer (and fellow Sopranos alum) Terrence Winter, Chianese will guest in six of the season's 12 episodes as one Leander Whitlock, whom Winter describes as a contemporary of Dabney Coleman's Commodore. "He's almost unrecognizable," says Winter of Chianese's appearance. C'mon, we'd know that mug anywhere!

Mega Buzz: Scoop on CSI: Miami, 90210, Criminal Minds, and More!

Every week, editors Mickey O'Connor and Adam Bryant answer your burning questions. Want some TV scoop? Please send all questions to

I need to know more about Delko's undercover investigation of the lab on CSI: Miami. What's he going to find? — Marshall
ADAM: "That investigation will reveal the most dramatic betrayal in Horatio Caine's career," co-executive producer Barry O'Brien tells us. "It puts Horatio in a light we've never seen him in before, questioning the loyalties of his team. ... It will rock the fabric of the team and threaten at least one — if not more — CSI's future." Hmm, maybe that's the reason Delko will be back full-time next season.

Will Dixon and Silver ever get back together on 90210? — Dana
MICKEY: For now, Dixon and Silver are dunzo, if only because Dixon... read more

8 Simple Girl's Crimes

Actress Kaley Cuoco is used to playing the popular girl on ABC's 8 Simple Rules. But her latest role in ABC Family's Crimes of Fashion (Sunday, 8pm/ET) casts her as a fashion student who — despite a great sense of style — is more geek than chic. While navigating the ever-changing world of hemlines, Cuoco's character, Brooke, discovers that her long-lost (and recently deceased) grandfather was a mob boss. Worse yet, his Mafia family wants her to fill his shoes! They're not exactly Jimmy Choos, so she steps in the only way she knows how. Jokes Cuoco: "She makes this little mob her own — and fashion-tabulous!"

Playing an inexperienced (and unconventional) mob boss was a perfect fit for Cuoco, since the 18-year-old is completely clueless about Mafia dramas. Before filming, she didn't even know that her costar, Dominic Chianese, plays Uncle Junior on HBO's The Sopranos. Talk about out of the loop.
