Soprano Star Hooks Up With The Fbi

Former THE SOPRANOS star JOE PANTOLIANO was terrified when he met with FBI agents to research his new TV role as an undercover expert - because he discovered the best in the business are the best liars.

Pantoliano met with the FBI's crack behavioural science unit to work on his character JOE RENATO in new drama THE HANDLER, which debuted in America on Friday night (26SEP03).

He says, "They gave me a tour and pretty much explained to me that the profile of any undercover agent must be the same as the profile of someone who is a sociopath because you have to be good at lying and deception.

"You have to build trust and then you have to betray those trusts."
