Alessandro Nivola In Talks for 'The Sopranos' Prequel Movie!

Alessandro Nivola is in talks to star in the upcoming movie The Many Saints of Newark, a prequel to the beloved HBO series The Sopranos.

The 46-year-old actor will play Dickey Moltisanti, a character who was referred to on the series, but never seen as he was murdered before the show began.

In The Many Saints of Network, Moltisanti will be “a charismatic but violent made man who falls in love with his own father’s much younger bride, a recent immigrant from Italy,” according to THR.

The character will mentor a teenage Tony Soprano and other characters from The Sopranos will be making appearances in the film.

Alessandro, who is married to Emily Mortimer, is best known for his work in movies like Face/Off, American Hustle, and A Most Violent Year.
