Joey Pants’ autograph & other highlights of BEA 2011 this week (Book Expo America) in NYC
Met “Joey Pants” (Joe Pantoliano, Sopranos & film star — Risky Business & many others!) yesterday at the BEA signing autographs for his new book “ASYLUM” which looks great!

I’ve been a big fan of Joe Pantoliano since “Risky Business.” He talked to me about two of his earlier movies: “Eddie And The Cruisers” and the remake of of “From Here To Eternity” (he played Maggio, Frank Sinatra’s original role). I told him the hat he was wearing at BEA makes him look like Sinatra, and he told me he’d love to play Sinatra. He also told my wife he still brings 1 of his 4 pet dogs to Hoboken (where I live) to play in one of the dog runs there.
