"On shooting "Witness to the Mob" and "Mickey Blue Eyes" simultaneously: "We shot 'The Sopranos' pilot and then I did [the 1998 NBC miniseries] 'Witness to the Mob'. Liz Hurley [one of the film's producer] was letting me do both movies. I was working days on 'Witness to the Mob' and nights on 'Mickey Blue Eyes'. You get in a van and you drive across town and you become another gangster. It was funny.
" . . . I worked all day on 'Witness to the Mob', where I was doing a scene where I was about to be killed by Sammy Gravano, and I got into a van and went across town and Jimmy Caan was waiting for me. He said, 'Who are you that I got to wait for you?" --Vincent Pastore to Susan King in the Los Angeles Times, August 20, 1999
"The only time I turned work down is when I can't do it because of 'The Sopranos'. I don't think I'm in a position [to turn down work]. I had a talk with my agent and he had seen 'Mickey Blue Eyes' already and he said, 'Vinnie, I think you are in a position now you got to start turning some stuff away.' But when you got a daughter in grad school and you are paying her expenses, it's pretty hard to turn a job down.
"You just hope the films are going to be good. A lot of times, you don't think they are going to be good and they turn out to be masterpieces." --Pastore to Los Angeles Times, August 20, 1999
