NEW YORK, Dec. 26 (UPI) -- Edie Falco says she'd love James Gandolfini, her co-star from "The Sopranos," to reprise his role of New Jersey mob boss Tony on her new show "Nurse Jackie."

"The Sopranos" ran from 1999 to 2007. The gangster saga wrapped up with Falco and Gandolfini's characters Carmela and Tony Soprano having dinner with their children before the screen cut to black and the credits rolled.

Although the ending was never fully explained, some analysts and fans of the show understood it to mean Tony was shot and at least lost consciousness, if not died.

Falco now plays the title character in the medical dramedy "Nurse Jackie."

"I've always had this fantasy of having Jim, as Tony, pulled in on a stretcher in the background, so we'd know he did, in fact, get shot in the restaurant in the finale and ended up at All Saints Hospital," Falco told TVGuide.com. "People would finally have an answer as to what the hell happened after the screen went black."
