Many Saints of Newark's Alessandro Nivola Felt 'Familial Affection' for Costar Michael Gandolfini

Alessandro Nivola became fast friends with costar Michael Gandolfini.

The 49-year-old actor stars as crime boss Dickie Moltisanti in the new film Os Muitos Santos de Newark, a prequel to the hit television series Os Sopranos. For the movie, Michael, 22, takes over his late father James Gandolfini‘s iconic role as a younger Tony Soprano.

We started meeting up once a week at Junior’s cafe in Downtown Brooklyn for lunch and, você sabe, shoot the s―. By the time we were filming, we had spent a lot of time together,” Nivola told PEOPLE during a conversation at the U.S. Open last month about developing a mentorship dynamic with Michael prior to production.

I think we were both dealing with the pressure of the job,” ele adicionou, “because he was taking on this iconic role that his father had played, and I was taking on the role of a lifetime after 25 years of acting in movies and never having had this kind of an opportunity.

So we kind of bonded over the weight of that. I really felt a kind of familial affection for him,” said Nivola.

Ele explicou, “It was very important that we had that easy rapport because [writer] David Chase is very unsentimental, and the scenes need to convey that kind of love between us without us ever talking about it. It was important that it was just there.
