‘Sopranos’ prequel star reveals details
The star of the upcoming “The Sopranos” prequel says a young Tony Soprano will be a part of the film “The Many Saints of Newark.”
Alessandro Nivola talked about the project Wednesday.
“I’m playing Dickie Moltisanti, who is the central character in the movie, and he is Christopher Moltisanti’s dad,” Nivola said.
Christopher Moltisanti, who was played by Michael Imperioli in the series, was a protege of Tony Soprano, the New Jersey mob boss portrayed by James Gandolfini.
