The Many Saints of Newark: eight Fast Issues We Know About The Sopranos Prequel Film
The cast includes Michael Gandolfini, James Gandolfini’s son, as Tony Soprano
Unfortunately James Gandolfini is no longer with us. The film and television actor was only 51 years old when he died of a sudden heart attack and left the world with decades of great performances that could never be realized. He was an immense talent, able to be gentle or brutal, cold or approachable and only to know him when Tony Soprano robbed you of his other outstanding achievements during an impressive and resilient career. Certainly, it’s hard to know who might be channeling the actor’s incredible performance, especially in the character’s early years. In a touching decision, however, it was decided that Michael Gandolfini, the late actor’s son, would take on his father’s most famous character in this prequel.
Considering Michael Gandolfini is still establishing himself as an actor, we still don’t know what he can do as an actor, especially as this character. But that is certainly an aspect of the film that we are very curious to see and would like to discover for ourselves.
