Whilst one of the actors in “The Many Saints of Newark” — together with Corey Stoll, who stars as Uncle Junior Soprano — have been main lovers of “The Sopranos” entering the movie, Billy Magnussen admitted that he wasn’t one among them. The explanation why, Magnussen printed in an unique interview with Looper, was once slightly easy — he could not have the funds for it. In spite of everything, HBO has all the time been a top rate cable outlet, and as such, it was once the loss of finances for a tender guy entering his personal — no longer a loss of hobby — that not on time Magnussen’s hobby within the collection.
“To let you know the reality, I had by no means watched ‘The Sopranos’ sooner than listening to in regards to the audition [for ‘The Many Saints of Newark’]. I knew of the collection, what it was once, and it indisputably modified the structure of tv when it got here out, however unfortunately I used to be in highschool after which in school, and I could not have the funds for HBO,” Magnussen informed Looper, guffawing. “So, I used to be not able to watch it.”
Alternatively, with the chance to megastar in “The Sopranos” writer David Chase’s prequel movie, Magnussen stated he “dove into that sea of creativity” that got here from the thoughts of the acclaimed author, director and manufacturer. “I completely fell in love with it and all of the characters in ‘The Sopranos,'” Magnussen enthused. “What is loopy is, you must most certainly make a derivative of each personality on that display.”
