Corey Stoll pictured as Uncle Junior filming ‘Sopranos’ prequel

Corey Stoll was spotted in full Uncle Junior garb on Friday while filming the “Sopranos” prequel, “The Many Saints of Newark,” in New York.

Sporting a newsboy cap, a plaid robe, and Junior’s signature specs, the 44-year-old — who starred in “House of Cards” — was back to work on the highly anticipated film, which has been delayed until March 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Dominic Chianese, now 89, famously portrayed the character on the HBO series that ran from 1999-2007.

In addition to Stoll, the “Many Saints of Newark” stars Leslie Odom Jr., Ray Liotta, Vera Farmiga, Alessandro Nivola and Michael Gandolfini as Tony Soprano, a role made famous by his late father, James Gandolfini, who died of a heart attack in 2013.

Back in March, 21-year-old Michael was seen in Brooklyn shooting a fight scene against the 1960s backdrop.

Earlier this summer, Gandolfini paid tribute to his late father with a touching Instagram post.

“This past year I’ve felt closer to you than ever. But 7 years is a surreal amount of time. Thank you for being by my side always,” he wrote at the time.
