  1. These only one Tony Soprano…he can never be replicated. I probably won’t watch it!!! 😔

    • 1. The Movie isn’t about Tony, It’s about his father and Uncle Junior
      2. James Gandolfini couldn’t play a young Tony Soprano anyway, theres two reasons for that….
      3. Anyone else could have played Young Tony but it feels right to give Michael that role. Blood line. That kid has a bit of Tony Soprano in him too.

    • +CrispyBacon His son absolutely should play that role. I thought this was going to be a remake of the series. Either way, don’t take it personal if i don’t watch it…my goodness!!! 😒
