Michael Imperioli Plans Permanent Move to Detroit


Michael Imperioli


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."

    As a native Detroiter I was glued to the premiere last night. I hope the show does well and enjoyed the premier. Michael Imperioli was great as the brooding detective as was the rest of the cast. I am hoping the writer's leave some room for character development on this show - the action is great, but we need to love the characters.

    I too am a Detroiter relocated but will move back one day. I already know the show will be a success. Detroit will raise from the ashes. So glad there is a series on my hometown.

    As a native Detroiter who had to move to find work, I'm looking forward to the pilot. I hope the Imperiolis are able to move to Detroit because they will be embraced if they do. Detroit needs all the good PR it can get.

    Detroit will love him if we are treated fairly by the show. Nobody is more loyal than Detroit area folks.
