Sopranos Spinoff? Fugheddaboutit

vanity_fair_sopranos.jpgSeries creator David Chase, via this week’s New York magazine:

It’s doubtful that there would be a spinoff. Actually, one time we talked about it—and I didn’t know if it was serious—I thought there could be a good sitcom of Janice and Bobby Bacala. What’s also occurred to me is a prequel with Tony. But the problem is that Jim Gandolfini is such a genius, frankly, that it would be a real challenge to find someone who would be believable as a young Tony.”
