James Gandolfini‘s son couldn’t stop grinning ear to ear at the thought of playing his late father’s most iconic role, and his smile says it perfectly — Michael Gandolfini‘s up for the challenge.
Michael spoke to Adam Glyn while out in NYC Monday night — hanging out with “The Deuce” star Chris Bauer — and talked a little bit about the upcoming ‘Sopranos‘ prequel. Michael’s playing young Tony Soprano in “The Many Saints of Newark.”
It’s easy to see why Michael got the role … for starters, the resemblance is uncanny. And, he reportedly beat out stiff competition because he mastered his father’s iconic character’s mannerisms. Can’t beat the genes, baby!
Check out the clip … Michael’s got Boss written all over him.
