It hasn’t been a good week for screen gangsters. First, we had the passing of James Caan. Then Tony Sirico. Both men of The Godfather and Sopranos fame respectively, but so much more besides.
Is Paulie in heaven, hell or purgatory? Let’s remember his formula:
That’s different for everybody. You add up all your mortal sins and multiply that number by 50. Then you add up all your venial sins and multiply that by 25. You add that together and that’s your sentence. I figure I’m gonna have to do 6,000 years before I get accepted into heaven and 6,000 years is nothin’ in eternity terms. I can do that standing on my head. It’s like a couple of days here.
Charles Pagano… watch out!
