The New Hollywood is a podcast interview show. Host Brian Flaherty interviews the Actors, Directors, Writers and Musicians who are breaking the rules and carving out a new path for others to follow, not unlike the great auteurs of the 70’s.
This week on The New Hollywood Podcast we talk to actor David Proval. David plays one of the best baddies ever on The Sopranos – Richie Aprile. We talk about how Jon Voight helped him get a meeting on Mean Streets with a Marty Scorsese that David thought went terrible until he was awoken by a phone call at 2 a.m. telling him he got a part. Also he tells a story of how he broke a rib in the famous pool room scene and how he never mentioned it. Ever. Until he talked about on the podcast. So thats pretty cool. We also discuss his little known feature film Nunzio that many people talk about with great love but whose failure to change his career frustrated David so much he left LA and went back to the New York theater world. And of course we talk David Chase and The Sopranos. All here, today, on The New Hollywood Podcast t.
