So, let's get this straight: it doesn't bother Falco to play a character who is married to, and complicit in the schemes of, a mobster...but it makes her ill to play a character who voted for the same president as a majority of the American voters.

Still, Rock Me Amadeus was a pretty cool song, you have to say.

This isn't that Falco, is it?

Never mind.

Edie Falco is a vile person in real life who also has serious mental problems.

She takes all kinds of anti-depressants, admits that she purposely likes to date married men, etc.

That's the whole point of being an ignorant hypocrite. Just too damn stupid and ignorant to get it, that's why they live in the fantasy world of acting.

I find it more telling that that a character who is married to, and complicit in the schemes of, a mobster is written as having voted for Bush. Why would that be relevant in such a series, unless they just want to say that this is Bush's base?

I guess we get to see how good of an actress she is now. Reckon she can pull off respect for Bush when she can't stand him?

Anybody you can play the part of a nasty B* the way she did last season, isn't acting. She was so "good" at it, I could hardly watch the show and haven't watched a single repeat.

Let her stick with her party which is rife with antisemites... How stupid can she get?

Actually, the writer of the show is rarely, if ever, that politically heavy handed. In fact, some of the almost overt political messages on the show are almost conservative.

OH NO, GET HER OUT OF HOLLYWOOD, SHE'S GOING TO MAKE A BAD NAME FOR THE BUSINESS. (Sorry for shouting but I can't imagine that type of personality swimming amongst the morally superior actors and actresses that walk the golden...I'm ill from even saying this sarcasm)

I was just going to post that it doesn't seem to bother Edi that she plays a character married to a murderer, she enables him and endangers her family BUT she can't stand the thought that her CHARACTER has to admit she voted for Bush.

No wonder no one takes Hollyweird seriously.

Man, she forgets it is just pretend!

But I wonder, if anyone on this thread had to play an part convincingly of a person who said they voted for Kerry, Could you do it?

BTW Falco may be a silly vapid dingbat conviinced the world is all dem and only a few Bush voters, but she is a wonderful actress.

If Alan Alda can play the Republican nominee for President, Falco can play a Bush voter married to the mob.

While I didn't see it last season, I agree with you.

When she was whining to the psychiatrist about Tony, and he told her to leave, but not take any of the 'spoils', I think she was well acquainted with the self-deception needed to ignore the advice. I don't see that as acting.

In the 2004 presidential election, Falco emerged on the political scene as a spokeswoman for M.O.B. (Mothers Opposing Bush).

Wiki.

This just goes to show that they're not really actors. The perverse characters they play are nothing more than extensions of their own personalities.

I agree that she's a wonderful actress. The Carmela character is one of the most complex, and hilariously funny, hypocrites ever created. She joyously wallows in the luxury and power Tony's "profession" enables her to enjoy while simultaneously going to church and agonizing with various priests over the guilt feelings she's suffering. In the first episode of the first season she hears somebody trying to get into the second floor, grabs an AK, chambers a round, goes out and points it at Meadow, her daughter, who's trying to sneak in. Then, when Tony decides AJ needs more discipline in his life and tries to send him to a military academy, Carmela loudly protests, complaining that they actually DRILL WITH GUNS. Writing just doesn't get any better than that, and Edie manages to pull it off as Carmela.

Yeah, the writing on this show is great that way.

After writing the post I just sent you, it struck me that Edie does such a good job of playing Carmela because Edie has a similarly perverse, hypocritical, world view. She sees no harm in playing a character who enables a murdering thug but is horrified when that character says something favorable about President Bush. That's an awful lot like Carmela using an AK to defend her house and profiting from Tony's "profession" but being horrified at the prospect of AJ going to military school and DRILLING WITH GUNS.

What I really like about the humor is it's so dry. Nobody mugs for the camera or attempts to get laughs. It just comes out naturally from the script, who they are, and what they're doing. That shows real writing skill.
