Lorraine Bracco Loves 'Rizzoli & Isles,' Even Though It's Not About the Mob (VIDEO)

Lorraine Bracco of 'Rizzoli & Isles' on ''The Talk'Lorraine Bracco gets to play against type on 'Rizzoli & Isles' as Angela Rizzoli, as the mother of Angie Harmon's Detective Jane Rizzoli. But according to Julie Chen on 'The Talk' (weekdays, syndicated on CBS), Bracco still sometimes has trouble shaking her roots in mobster movies like 'Goodfellas' and TV shows like 'The Sopranos.'

"It's fun," Bracco said of playing Rizzoli. "It's so different for me because she's kind of funny." Funny wasn't exactly the mood of the day when she was playing Karen Hill in 'Goodfellas,' but she has her fans. Chen recounted people coming up to Bracco in a restaurant and "kissing her ring, like she's the Godfather."

One of those guys who came over was one of her 'Goodfellas' co-stars, Johnny Williams, who played Johnny Roastbeef. Bracco laughed as Chen told the story. "I'm laughing because I don't even know his real name, I know him only as Johnny Roast Beef," she said.
