Michael Gandolfini Films a Fight Scene as Young Tony Soprano

Michael Gandolfini gets into a fight on the set of his upcoming movie The Many Saints of Newark on Thursday (March 12) in the Bronx, N.Y.

The 19-year-old actor is playing the role of Tony Soprano, who his late father James Gandolfini turned into an iconic character on the HBO series The Sopranos.

Michael says that when he was cast in the upcoming Sopranos prequel movie, he went back and watched The Sopranos for the first time.

“One [scene] that crushed me was when he yells at A.J. and he gets a pizza to apologize and he sits by his son’s bed and says, ‘I couldn’t ask for a better son,’” Michael told Esquire. “I just knew he was talking to me in that scene.”
