Ray Liotta is going back to his mob movie roots. The GoodFellas actor is the latest name to join the Sopranos prequel movie The Many Saints of Newark. There’s no word on who Liotta is playing, but there’s a full-circle element to this casting. Back when The Sopranos was still in development, Liotta was considered to play the lead of Tony Soprano.

Why You Shouldn’t Overlook the American South

Posted: 2/18/2019 | February 18th, 2019 I love the South. Before I went traveling, I always had this perception that the southern states in the US were backward. They were filled with racists, yokels, and obese, gun-loving, Jesus freaks. It was a perception born out of a quarter-century of living in New England and consuming mass media and stereotypes about a people and place I really didn’t know anything about. Then, at the start of my grand trip in 2006, I drove across the United States. As ...

Real restaurants from TV and movies

Restaurants, cafes, bakeries , bars, and the like are often a vital part of a story’s plot. Maybe it’s where a group of friends have coffee and spend time together or where two characters plan a murder. We all wish places like Central Perk from Friends existed or that we could visit The Three Broomsticks in Harry Potter for a Butterbeer. Unfortunately, while shows and movies use a myriad of filming locations all over the globe, not all of these are accessible — or even real — for fans to visit...

‘The Sopranos’ Series Finale Almost Had a Much Different Ending

The Sopranos marks its 20th anniversary this week, and everyone is still talking about the series finale, some 12 years after it aired. Love it or hate it, the Sopranos finale was unforgettable, particularly for its now-infamous final scene in which (spoilers) the screen cut to black, and held there, leaving the fate of Tony Soprano ambiguous, and spouting many theories in the process. But according to creator David Chase, the series could’ve had a much different final scene – one that would’ve...

‘Sopranos’ Prequel Movie Will Feature a Young Tony Soprano

The Sopranos creator David Chase has answered a very pressing question regarding his Sopranos prequel movie, The Many Saints of Newark: will we see Tony Soprano in the film? The answer – yes. Since the film is set in the 1960s, it enables Chase and company to skirt around the tragic fact that James Gandolfini, who so famously played Tony, died in 2013. As a result, the Tony we see in The Many Saints of Newark will be around 8-years-old. I still quite haven’t gotten used to the idea of a Sopr...
