After temporarily living in Michigan while playing on 'Detroit 1-8-7', the actor considers to make the relocation permanent if the show does well.
Actor-turned-singer Michael Imperioli is considering a permanent move to Detroit, Michigan after selling the building that housed his New York City theater company. The former "The Sopranos" star ran Studio Dante from a theater in Manhattan's Chelsea district with his wife, Victoria, and the couple has sold the property for a reported $4.15 million.
The news comes one week after the Imperiolis listed their TriBeCa neighborhood townhouse for $7 million, after temporarily moving to the Michigan city with their three kids while the actor films U.S. TV drama "Detroit 1-8-7". And Imperioli, who plays a Detroit detective on the series, admits he's considering making the relocation permanent if the show does well.
He tells the New York Post, "It is a big decision, but a great opportunity. I am really loving where I am living (while filming the new series). There is really a lot to discover there." He additionally says, "We are doing 13 episodes. That will bring me to the holidays. I think in the fall, we will have a better idea of how we are doing in the ratings and if it looks like it is going to have legs."
