Michael Gandolfini: a tribute to his father
So much so, that the young Gandolfini will play the character made famous by his own father through a teenage version of it, who grew up and took his first steps in crime in one of the most conflictive areas of Newark. And it is that as it grows, the threats against the DiMeo family are more and more serious on the part of rival mafias; however, Tony will be supervised by his uncle Dickie Molsitani, played by Alessandro Nivola.
The cast is completed by Corey Stoll as Junior Soprano, John Magaro as Silvio Dante, Billy Magnussen as Paulie Gualtieri and Mattea Conforti as Janice Soprano, alongside Jon Bernthal, Vera Farmiga and the always charismatic Ray Liotta. Screenwriter David Chase, creator of the original series, is the lead writer and producer on a production directed by Alan Taylor, one of the regular directors of the HBO series.
