Pegorino Family/The Sopranos character equivalents

Recommended Posts

The Journey
Posted (edited)

Which characters in the Sopranos match characters in the Pegorino Family the most to you? To me it is:

 

Jimmy Pegorino

Unlike most members of the Pegorinos, Jimmy doesn’t strike me as being similar to anyone in the Sopranos. He is just a stereotypical old, angry, and paranoid mafia boss.

 

Ray Boccino - Johnny Sack

yes I know Johnny Sack was with the Lupertazzi’s and not the Soprano’s, but hear me out. Similarly to Ray Boccino, Johnny was the big shot character from Manhattan, a real New York mobster, just as Ray was introduced before we found out he was with the Alderney crew. I would also say that he has a bit of Silvio in him due to his stereotypical mobster demeanor.

 

Phil Bell - Tony Soprano (season 1)

yes I know Bell is an Irishman but he still counts as a high ranking member of the Pegorinos. I think he most matches Tony because he owns the strip club and says he works in “waste management”, similarly to Tony. He also has an (ex) wife and children, the divorced part doesn’t match Tony but the children part does. He is also a capo which is what Tony was in Season 1 and there is quite a resemblance between the two.

 

Frankie Gallo - Christopher Moltisanti (early in the show)

Frankie Gallo, Phil Bell’s nephew by marriage. Who does that remind you of? Chris Moltisanti was Tony’s nephew by marriage as well. They are also both described as being irresponsible. He is also getting married which is similar to Chris and Adriana before (not gonna spoil it, but you know what if you watched the show).

 

Anthony Corrado

He doesn’t really seem like he’s based off of anyone but I would like to point out that his name is a reference to Tony (first name Anthony) and Uncle Junior (first name Corrado). I find this kind of cool.

 

Angie Pegorino

Again, not really that similar to any character from the Sopranos. But Angie’s voice actress is the same person who played Rosalie Aprile on the Sopranos.

Anthony Corrado's voice actor played a regular character on The Sopranos as well, Eugene Pontecorvo. And Jimmy Pegorino's voice actor appeared in one episode. Also Honkers is based on the same strip club used in the Sopranos. Not sure who is similar to who, just some fun facts.

Great thread... love The Sopranos.

 

Jimmy Pegorino reminds me so much of Phil Leotardo. He feels like he's owed a seat on the Commission in the same way Phil always rolls out "I did twenty f*ckin' years!" when he wants his due.

 

Ray has a lot in common with Ralphie. Great earner, slimy personality, hairtrigger tempers... wonder if he wore a wig? 😉

 

Another Sopranos/GTAIV fun fact... I think you can actually find Satriale's Pork Store somewhere in Acter. Not far from the TLMC clubhouse.

Now you mention it I totally agree about Jimmy and Ray. Ray and Ralphie also both ended up killed mostly just because their personalities rubbed people the wrong way

 

And I never knew that, you're right:

Shame they didn't put the pig on top

Ray's relationship with Ashley kind of reminds me of Ralphie and Janice.
