James Gandolfini's Son Michael to Play Young Tony Soprano in Prequel Movie!

Michael Gandolfini, the son of the late actor James Gandolfini, is set to play a young Tony Soprano in the upcoming movie The Many Saints of Newark.

The film is a feature-length prequel to the HBO series The Sopranos, in which James played the titular character.

“It’s a profound honor to continue my dad’s legacy while stepping into the shoes of a young Tony Soprano,” Michael, 19, said in a statement to Deadline. “I’m thrilled that I’m going to have the opportunity to work with David Chase and the incredible company of talent he has assembled for The Many Saints of Newark.”

James died suddenly in 2013 at the age of 51 while on vacation with his family in Italy. He won three Emmys, five SAG Awards, and one Golden Globe for his work on the show.

'Tony Soprano Is Not Dead' Headlines Are Inaccurate, Creator David Chase's Rep Says

One of the most famous scenes in television history has to be the final scene of The Sopranos, in which the main character Tony Soprano was left with an ambiguous ending.

A journalist for Vox reportedly had a conversation with the show’s creator David Chase and she claims that he admitted to her that James Gandolfini‘s character is not dead.

Now, Mr. Chase‘s representative released a statement to say that the comments were “misconstrued.”

“A journalist for Vox misconstrued what David Chase said in their interview. To simply quote David as saying, ‘Tony Soprano is not dead,’ is inaccurate. There is a much larger context for that statement and as such, it is not true,” the rep said.

DO YOU THINK Tony Soprano is dead or alive?

Emmys In Memoriam 2013 Details: Cory Monteith & More

One of the most anticipated moments of the night at the 2013 Emmy Awards this evening will be the In Memoriam segment and we have all the details right here.

Five people will be remembered with special recognition during the ceremony: Glee‘s Cory Monteith (remembered by co-star Jane Lynch), The SopranosJames Gandolfini (remembered by co-star Edie Falco), All in the Family‘s Jean Stapleton (remembered by co-star Rob Reiner), Mork and Mindy‘s Jonathan Winters (remembered by co-star Robin Williams), and Family Ties producer Gary David Goldberg (remembered by the show’s Michael J. Fox).

“I always find the In Memoriam is just really interesting because sometimes it seems weird that they keep the audio on in the house, so some people get applause and some people don’t, and it turns it into this weird moment,” host Neil Patrick Harris told Access Hollywood. “And you want that moment to be honoring those people, and not a competition.”

“We’ve come up with this idea — five different people that we chose sort of from different areas of television are being spoken about by people who were important to them,” he explained. “[They'll speak about them] not in a pitying way, but I think in a respectful, classy way that will make you remember their life in a positive, forward-momentum kind of style.”
