The former SOPRANOS star was booked to appear on daytime show THE VIEW - and was furious to be pulled from the programme.
He says, "I don't think it was The View versus Joey Pants. I think it was more a network decision.
"The View has been really good to me over the years in helping me support my projects and I was really looking forward to being on the show.
"It had to be an ABC thing. They booked me four weeks in advance and then cancelled a week ahead of time. I think it was an ABC strategy that kind of backfired."29/09/2003 09:30
