Last "Sopranos" Hold-outs Sign On For Finale
Steven Van Zandt and Tony Sirico finally got the payraise they deserved for the final eight episodes of "The Sopranos." They were asking for $200,000 per and HBO was offering a 10% raise from $75,000 to $82,500. The fellas "more than doubled" their pay, but how much more is unclear. Good for them; it's not like they were gonna get a cut of the DVD sales. Let's hope Chase signed on to write some good episodes -- it's gonna take a lot of heavy lifting to make up for the dreadful last batch of shows and not let the finale seem like a letdown.
