James Gandolfini's Son Michael To Play Tony Soprano In 'Sopranos' Movie

The prequel will feature the actor as a young Tony in a film written by the HBO series creator.


Huffington Post / January 23, 2019

James Gandolfini son’s just landed a killer role, playing the Tony Soprano character that his father made famous, Deadline reported.

Michael Gandolfini has been cast as a young Tony in “The Many Saints of Newark,” New Line’s prequel movie to HBO’s mob series “The Sopranos” (1999-2007).

“It’s a profound honor to continue my dad’s legacy while stepping into the shoes of a young Tony Soprano,” Gandolfini said in a statement, per Variety.

The film, co-written by “The Sopranos” series creator, David Chase, is set during the Newark riots in 1967. Cory Stoll, Billy Magnussen, Jon Bernthal, Alessandro Nivola, and Vera Farmiga have also been cast, Variety reported. Some of the series’ original characters also will appear.

1. He's a nice looking young man - really resembles his father

Hard to believe he's grown. I can remember seeing photos of a cute, pudgy adolescent, with his father. He was just 13 when he found his father, dead.
