James Gandolfini's Son Visits Iconic Booth from Sopranos Finale as He Prepares to Film Prequel


Michael Gandolfini is stepping into his father’s shoes! In January, Michael, 19, signed on to play a younger version of Tony Soprano — the iconic mobster his late father James Gandolfini famously played in The Sopranos— in a prequel movie to the series. Michael recently got into character by visiting the real-life restaurant booth where The Sopranos famously ended. In a photo posted to Facebook on Thursday, the actor posed in the booth at Holsten’s Ice Cream Parlor in Bloomfield, New Jersey. The Sopranos followed the life of Tony Soprano, a New Jersey mob boss, as he dealt with personal and professional issues in his home and business. It ran for six seasons before ending in 2007. RELATED: Edie Falco Reveals She Still Hasn’t Seen The Sopranos — 20 Years After Series Premiered The booth was featured in the famous last scene of the show’s series finale. In the show’s final scene, Tony is joined by his wife Carmela, played by actress Edie Falco, and later his son, Anthony Jr., played by Robert Iler. His future uncertain as an investigation has been launched into his mafia ties, a pensive Tony slips coins into the small booth’s jukebox and plays Journey’s hit, “Don’t Stop Believing.” As the trio makes small talk, Tony orders onion rings while his daughter Meadow, portrayed by Jamie-Lynn Sigler, is seen outside parking her car. The music blares, and the camera pans the room, as the scene fades to black, closing out the hit HBO series. The role scored the elder Gandolfini one Golden Globe Award, three SAG awards and three Emmys. He died of a heart attack in 2013 at the age of 51. “It’s a profound honor to continue my dad’s legacy while stepping into the shoes of a young Tony Soprano,” Michael said in a statement obtained by Variety and Deadline in January.

James Gandolfini’s Son Michael, 19, Cast as Tony Soprano in Sopranos Movie The upcoming movie will be set within the era of the Newark riots in the 1960s — a time when African-American and Italian gangs in Newark were at each other’s throats. David Chase co-wrote the script with producer Lawrence Konner. PEOPLE previously confirmed that Jon Bernthal, Vera Farmiga and Ray Liotta were in final negotiations to join the cast, though their roles have yet to be revealed. Alessandro Nivola is also on board as Tony’s uncle Dickie Moltisanti. (People.com Latest News) More More
