Joey Pants is tired of Dying

Joe Pantoliano, who plays Cypher in the first ‘Matrix’, hopes he doesn’t get killed in the ‘Sopranos’:
“I’m not going to presume to tell David how to write his series but if Tony has to die, I know Ralphie would be only too happy to oblige.

“My fear is that it’s going to be Ralphie that gets whacked next season and then everyone else will come back for fifth, sixth and seventh seasons.

“It seems to be my lot in life,” says Pantoliano referring to his character’s death in The Matrix.

“I really wanted the Wachowski brothers to find a way to bring my character back but they didn’t want to continue with him. They said they have enough new villains to deal with in the two sequels.”

In Cats & Dogs, Pantoliano provides the voice of the little hairless dog, who is a computer expert.

“At least they didn’t kill my dog off, so if there is a sequel to that one I can come back.”
