Robert De Niro To Replace James Gandolfini in Criminal Justice


It’s hard to believe it’s only been a few months since James Gandolfini’s tragic death.  The actor, most famous for his role as Tony on The Sopranos, was set to star on HBO’s limited TV series Criminal Justice.  Who could possibly fill the shoes of Gandolfini?

HBO has found perhaps the only man who could do the job: Robert De Niro.  The actor, in his first regular TV role, will take Gandolfini’s character as a lawyer defending a Pakistani man.  For those who didn’t know, there is no other actor I have more respect than Robert De Niro and I think HBO has made the right decision.  While De Niro hasn’t done much work as of late worthy of his status, I feel that he can give a great performance.  But what do you think?



  1. Sounds good!

    • Thanks for the comment. Can’t think of anyone better to replace him.

  2. I can’t even call you a De Niro fanboy, because who isn’t? Gosh I love this guy! So excited to hear this news!

    • I’m pumped. A great decision by HBO.

  3. I’m in total agreement. Gandolfini is a hard man to replace but if anyone can, Bobby can! Very interesting to see DeNiro tackle television.

    • Thanks! De Niro’s the best man to pick. I’d be interested in seeing what he does.

  4. Bummer about Gandolfini’s passing but like you said, if there’s a man who’s good enough to replace him it’d be De Niro.

    • Thanks for the comment. I think De Niro’s the best man to replace him.

  5. Awesome news. DeNiro is the only one who could fill his shoes. The man is indefatigable.

    • I agree, De Niro’s the only man for the job.

  6. De Niro is definitely a suitable replacement. Will have to keep an eye out for this series.

    • Thanks for the comment. It’s definitely one of my most awaited series of the next year.
