Vincent Pastore, better known for his character on The Sopranos, has quit Dancing With the Stars after one week of training. According to Vincent, he wasn’t prepared for the strenuous nature of the competition. The 60-year-old baby says,
“When I initially committed to joining Dancing with the Stars I didn’t realize just how physically demanding it would be for me,” Pastore said in a statement. “Unable to put forth my best effort, I felt it appropriate to step aside and give someone else the opportunity.”
Ironically, he played Salvatore ‘Big Pussy’ Bonpensiero on The Sopranos. I don’t know what the future holds for him. I can only imagine days of indigestion, insulin shots and heavy panting after standing up. Without people like Vincent Pastore, “quitter” would never be in the dictionary. For that, I salute him.
