    No lies being told. He was a great actor. That series is #1 for me. Everyone on there just played their roles perfect. Cant wait for prequel. I feel young gandolfini about to bring back Jersey Mob and we gonna have a sequel one day.

    I didn't even know Gandolfini's son is playing young Tony :mjcry: (R.I.P. to the GAWD)
    I hope this movie is littered with Easter eggs from the show

    Probably the GOAT television performance across multiple seasons. You'd be hard pressed to find a performance with more nuance, tension, power...every emotion was on full display, multiple times in each episode.

    spoilers


    He was a great actor in films too. He's downright terrifying in True Romance, for instance.
