The Many Saints of Newark brings back many big characters from The Sopranos, and here’s who plays who in this prequel movie.
The Many Saints of Newark reunites viewers with Tony Soprano and other characters from The Sopranos, and here’s who plays who in this prequel. The gangster genre is one of the most popular ones, and while there are many movies from different directors that have become the model to follow, there’s a series that changed the game for the genre in TV: The Sopranos. Created by David Chase, The Sopranos premiered on HBO in 1999 and came to an end in 2007 after six seasons, and is still widely regarded as one of the greatest TV series of all time.
Set in New Jersey and New York City between 1998 and 2007, The Sopranos followed Italian-American mobster Tony Soprano (James Gandolfini) as he did his best to balance his family life and his role as boss of the Soprano family. Of course, that was no easy task, and Tony soon found himself at odds with his wife Carmela (Edie Falco), his uncle Junior (Dominic Chianese), the Lupertazzi family, and other members of the Soprano family. The success of The Sopranos made way for three companion books, a video game, and different podcasts, and now joining the franchise is the prequel movie The Many Saints of Newark.
