James Murmur Zancone

James "Murmur" Zancone

James "Murmur" Zancone is a friend and AA sponsor of Christopher Moltisanti, "Murmur" is reportedly an expert at forging documents. Attended Raymond Curto's funeral, to Tony Soprano's chagrin. He has also shown that he has the ability to do some muscle work as well, as seen by his andBenny Fazio's quick kidnapping of J.T. Dolan. Present at Christopher's pitch meeting for Christopher's movie project Cleaver. Also with Christopher at an AA meeting when the crew first learned of Vito Spatafore's homosexuality, although Tony dismissed "Murmur" from the back-room discussion of the news at the Bada Bing. James earned the moniker "Murmur" for having a heart murmur during child birth. He was once friends with a Vietnam War veteran that drank formaldehyde just to get high.

"Murmur" made Christopher's rounds while Christopher was in LA - buying credit card numbers from a pizza parlor and from Hillel at the Teittleman's hotel, then selling the numbers to Mohammed and Ahmed at the Bada Bing. "Murmur" also went out to LA to meet Christopher because Christopher was "chipping" (relapsing). While there, "Murmur" and Christopher tried to intimidate Ben Kingsley and robbed Lauren Bacall of a gift basket she received at an awards ceremony. "Murmur" later attended Christopher' belated bachelor party at Nuovo Vesuvio and continued to hang out with the crew at Satriale's. "Murmur" was skeptical of the benefits of Christopher's relationship with fellow addict Julianna Skiff, warning Christopher that it could be enabling (to relapse into substance abuse), and of the possibility of Tony finding out about his recent slip at the Feast of St. Elzear. He was also responsible for informing Tony that Phil Leotardo had a heart attack - Tony had warmed to him a little by this point and rewarded him with a club soda.

In 2007, in the episode "The Blue Comet," "Murmur" (unknowingly) informed Paulie and Silvio, by showing them a newspaper article on the murders of two civilians, that Phil Leotardo is still alive and the job to kill him failed because the hitmen had misidentified their target.
