James Gandolfini Once Threatened to 'Beat the F-k' Out of Harvey Weinstein

James Gandolfini once threatened to “beat the f*ck” out of Harvey Weinstein.

His Sopranos co-stars Steve Schirripa and Michael Imperioli were guests on a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience where they told the story.

Weinstein wanted James to appear on David Letterman‘s talk show to promote 2012’s excellent Killing Them Softly.

The actors recalled, “He said, ‘Harvey Weinstein keeps calling, he wants me to do Letterman and I said no.’ And he got f*cking nasty with Jim. And Jim said, ‘I will beat the f*ck out of Harvey Weinstein! He f*cking calls me again, I will beat the f*ck out of him! For the money he paid me, I’m not f*cking doing it!’ Swear to God. And this is before all the Harvey Weinstein sh*t when he was still king sh*t.”

James passed away in 2013 at the young age of 51 from a heart attack.
