Patchogue Village attorney Brian Egan unexpectedly met actor Al Sapienza at Gino’s Pizza in Patchogue on Friday, Aug. 23. Egan said Sapienza, who played Mikey Palmice, a bodyguard to Junior Soprano on “The Sopranos,” was visiting Long Island for a film project at That Meetball Place. He was known on the show as a disliked weasel and a non-supporter of Tony Soprano, however, according to Egan, he was a “real nice and class guy.” Sapienza plays a new character in the second season of "New Dogs, Old Tricks," created by local filmmaker Candice Cain, which is available on Amazon Prime Video.
