It's interesting that you mention the use/lack of make-up in both Chianese performances. In the "Sopranos" book, Chianese says those giant glasses Junior wore basically made the character.



I should have mentioned the glasses, since the weakness of their eyes is so important to both characters. Here's a purely technical question I'd like to ask him, and any actors and theatre types who are reading---do those glasses count as make-up, a prop, or part of his costume?

Dan Leo

Costume, Lance, although if you're Horatio in CSI:Miami and always lifting your shades up as punctuation then they become a prop.

Mike Schilling

Graham’s eyes, the biggest, roundest in Hollywood since Betty Boop’s

You're sure you meant to say "eyes"?
