‘Sopranos’ star won’t sing

HBO's infamous fictional family gathers in NY

NEW YORK — “The Sopranos’ ” season-five DVD release party at Midtown eatery English Is Italian was a cramped pinball machine of large Italian men bouncing between tables and heading for the prosciutto, the cannoli and the giant, steaming tray of halibut and mussels.

When asked to reveal what happens in season six — now in production — the notoriously press-shy James Gandolfini delivered a firm “no.” How was revisiting the show through DVD commentaries? “I don’t do any of that stuff.” How many seasons will the show last? “No idea.”

Creator David Chase threw Daily Variety a bone: “Right now it’s six seasons. HBO has talked to me about doing more, and we haven’t decided.”

DVD release time isn’t a happy time for Chase, who grudgingly agreed to do one episode commentary.

“It’s very hard for me to look at the DVDs,” he said. “I want to just move on. You become ultra-critical, or you fall in love with it and you think, ‘Oh, we should be doing more of this or more of that.'”
