Steve Schirripa is most widely remembered as the reasonable, amiable mobster Bobby 'Bacala' Baccalieri on "The Sopranos." Since the lights went out on that classic mafia drama, Schirripa has branched out into a few other projects. But as he told Mario Batali Thursday on "The Chew," (weekdays on ABC) both series share something in common with "The Sopranos."
Schirripa is hosting a show on Investigation Discovery called "Nothing Personal," a non-fiction series "about murder for hire. It's not hit-men, it's people who hire people to kill their husband or wife ... and they're all true stories," he explained.
When the conversation turned to his sitcom, "The Secret Life of the American Teenager," Schirripa described how his character channels the fatherly side of Bobby's personality. "I play a regular dad on that one, as opposed "The Sopranos" where I played .... somewhat of a regular dad. More regular than the other guys," he reflected. »
