The Cast Includes Michael Gandolfini, James Gandolfini’s Son, As Tony Soprano
Quite sadly, James Gandolfini is no longer with us. The film and television actor was only 51 when he passed away following a sudden heart attack, leaving the world with decades of great performances that would never be realized. He was an immense talent, capable of being gentle or brutish, cold or approachable, and to know him only as Tony Soprano robs you of his other outstanding performances throughout an impressive and withstanding career. Certainly, it’s hard to know who could channel the actor’s incredible performance, particularly during the character’s early years. But in a touching decision, it was decided that Michael Gandolfini, the son of the late actor, would take over his dad’s most famous character in this prequel.
Considering that Michael Gandolfini is still establishing himself as an actor, we’re still unfamiliar with what he can do as a performer, especially as this character. But that’s certainly one aspect of the movie that we’re very curious to see and discover for ourselves.
