    Default Sopranos problems/issues

    Has David Chase started going all Woody Allen on the cast of "The Sopranos"? We hear the creator of the HBO series has teed off his faithful actors by releasing only small sections of the script to them at a time, following in the footsteps of the eccentric movie director.
    "The cast is very upset," a spy tells us. "They got whole scripts before, and now, David Chase no longer does that. They get the few pages where they have lines. It shows mistrust."

    An HBO spokeswoman told us all the actors do have a chance to get their hands on a script early on.

    "The whole cast comes to table reads, where they can hear the whole script," the rep tells us. "After that, it is true that some people get whole scripts and some people get just the parts they appear in."

    Of course, as Tony and Co. well know, where there's a law, there's always a way around it. "[The actors are] going to the Teamsters so they can see the whole story," our spy says.

    The union, which is responsible for all the set changes and handiwork on the show, requires a full copy of the script. So as long as the stars make nice with the Teamsters, they have no problem getting a complete copy of the lines.

    Apparently they're coming in 2006, with a possible 7th season. And yes, get the bloody show back on the air!!

    See, this is why my fellow actors can be so damned annoying! Who cares if you only get a few pages. Don't we ever only get a few pages in life? Not one of us knows what the full copy of our life's script is, so why should the characters? If I were in their shoes, it would be so fun, so mysterious not to know what's coming next! It's good to be surprised sometimes.

    And, yes, loose lips do sink ships. So STF up already, Sopranos cast, and be grateful you even have a damn job, a paying gig!

    As much as I absolutely adore the show, the whole mysteriousness behind the scenes is a complete turn-off.
