WACKY WEDNESDAY: Uncle Junior is 90!

Dominic Chianese, who played Corrado "Junior" Soprano in The Sopranos was born this day, February 24, 1931in New York City.

Happy birthday, Uncle Junior!

Though mostly known as an actor, serious Soprano fans know Chianese is a talented singer as well. Before his success in acting he also knocked around New York bars and coffee houses. He was master of ceremonies on open mike night at Gerdes Folk City in Greenwich Village. 

In the below scene from The Sopranos, Uncle Junior showed off his vocal talent:

Here's a little song from Chianese that Mafia movie fans should recognize

Here's a duet with Raul Malo of The Mavericks

To conclude, here's Chianese singing an Elvis/Hank Snow song. 

Buon Compleanno, Dominic!
