Open season on “Sopranos”? Not anymore.

You can heave a sigh of relief: The Wall Street Journal today carries the news that Chris-tuh-fuh will be on the final few episodes of HBO‘s “The Sopranos.” sirben.jpg.jpg

While the hot-tempered Moltisanti’s attempts at negotiation with Sir Ben Kingsley – pardon us, Ben Fuckin’ Kingsley – were clearly a wash this season, his real-world reps are clearly having better luck: HBO‘s attempt to define the final 20 episodes of the series as a single “season” have failed.

“The trio that secured varied raises, according to people familiar with the matter, are Michael Imperioli, who plays mobster Tony Soprano’s hothead nephew Christopher; Lorraine Bracco, who plays Tony’s shrink; and Vincent Curatola, who plays New York boss Johnny Sack.”

Silvio Dante: Chrissie, I hear you’re doing good with the gambling.
Christopher Moltisanti: You kidding me? With the money I made, I could go work at Denny’s for the rest of my life.
Silvio Dante: Yeah, like they would ever hire you.
