HBO has reached contract deals late last week with Sopranos‘ actors Tony Sirico (“Paulie Walnuts”) and Steven Van Zandt (“Silvio Dante”) to return for the show’s final eight episodes.

Earlier reports indicated Sopranos star and West Village Vespa enthusiast James Galdolfini had twisted some arms to get the actors and network to come to an agreement.

UPI reports each they will get $1.5 million for the eight installments or about $187,000 per episode.
