Aubrey Plaza Finally Binges Out ‘The Sopranos’ After Acting Opposite Michael Imperioli: ‘I’m Shook Up’

It took Aubrey Plaza almost two decades to finish “The Sopranos”.

The ‘White Lotus’ season 2 actress starred opposite ‘Sopranos’ alum Michael Imperioli, but she hadn’t seen the finale of HBO’s iconic mafia series until she recently sat on the show with the star. of “New Girl” and “Minx” Jake Johnson.

“I’m shook up,” Plaza said Vanity Fair to finally watch the polarizing finale to the “The Sopranos” series. “Yesterday I was like, ‘Oh my God, what do you think happened?’ And (Jake) was like, ‘I don’t know but I was crying,’ and I was like, ‘I was crying too.’ I was like, ‘This is ridiculous, that we’re going through the finale of ‘Sopranos””.

Even though “The Sopranos” is streaming on the HBO Max platform, Plaza still bought the entire show on iTunes, to her husband Jeff Baena’s dismay. Plaza cited the frustrating aspect of trying to navigate streamers and keep track of what’s available.

“I get very angry,” Plaza said. “I was trying to watch season 20 of ‘Top Chef’. I couldn’t fucking figure out how to get Hulu + Live. I give up! I cannot. I just can’t. And so what I like to do is go to iTunes and buy old movies. Or I go to iTunes and buy the entire “Sopranos” series, and then my husband says, “You can literally watch this for free on HBO Max.”

There probably won’t be more ‘Sopranos’ coming for the Plaza to binge: After the prequel film ‘Many Saints of Newark,’ series creator David Chase revealed to The Hollywood Reporter in 2021 that HBO executives asked him to create “another ‘Sopranos’ series from the time the movie ends to the time the series begins” to bridge the gap between the early 1970s and 1998 But HBO executive Casey Bloys said in 2022 that Chase has no interest in revisiting the series.

Michael Gandolfini, son of the late “Sopranos” star James Gandolfini, played the younger version of Tony Soprano in the film.

However, “The Sopranos” and “The White Lotus” star Imperioli is confirmed to star in a new feature film with “Sopranos” creator David Chase, which the duo co-wrote. She will also star fellow “Sopranos” alum Steve Schirripa, who co-hosts the viral “Talking Sopranos” podcast with Imperioli. Imperioli joked that the film is a “mystery project”. While there’s no publicly attached studio, Chase has a five-year deal with WarnerMedia.
