Tony Sirico, Star ‘Sopranos’, died at 79

Tony Sirico, the actor who plays the eccentric gangster Paulie Walnuts in “The Sopranos,” died Friday in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He is 79 years old.

His death was confirmed by Bob McGowan, his manager. No cause was given.

Paulie Walnuts – who is the nickname of Paul Gualtieri because he once hijacked a truck full of beans (he hoped for television) – was one of the most loyal, too sensitive, and reckless Tony Soprano mafia bosses. Paulie is the type of man who will participate in the intervention for drug addicts, and when it is his turn to speak, punching the man’s face. He loved his mother (even though he knew he was really his aunt), and he loved him because he wrote a check to keep him in an expensive nursing home.

Paulie wore track clothes, slept with prostitutes, was a very phobia about germs, and cats that were hated, and watched television on chairs covered with plastic. He hated being trapped by a restaurant check of almost $ 900 but could appreciate the delicious soy sauce package on a cold night at Pinus Barrens when there was nothing else to eat.

When the “Sopranos” cast appeared in a group shot on the Rolling Stone cover in 2001, Paulie stood with a baseball battery with a casual hanging on her right shoulder. No hairdresser in the “sopranos” set is allowed to touch Mr. Tony Sirico – Dark and luxurious with two silver “wings” on both sides. He smells dry and sprays himself.

“I grew up in Bensonhurst, where there were many types of mass types,” he told the publication of cigar lovers in 2001. “I watched them all the time, watching the way they walked, the cars they were driving, the way they drove approached each other.
