Family of “Sopranos” Star Joe Pantoliano Thanks Local Rescuers for Saving Actor’s Life, Shares Photo of Stunning Accident


The family of actor Joey Pantoliano thanked local rescuers in Wilton, Connecticut for saving the actor’s life last week. Joey, the popular star of “The Sopranos” and movies like “Risky Business” and “Bound,” was walking in the leafy suburb when one car T-boned another and smashed into him! (This is why I like to stay in the city, where you’re safe.) In an earlier post they said “Joey is home recovering. He has a severe head injury and some chest trauma.” Looking at this new picture, the scene looks like Joey was lucky — and we were, too. Sending him the best get well wishes.
