Celebrity spotting: village attorney meets Sopranos star
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.
