Salvatore “Big Pussy” Bonpensiero (Samson Moeakiola)
Poor “Big Pussy”. The former cat burglar is reportedly being played by Hawaii Five-0 actor, Samson Moeakiola, though that has yet to be officially confirmed, from what we’ve seen. But we may have gotten a glimpse if the ill-fated character in the Many Saints of Newark trailer. The character met his demise on the show once he started working with the FBI, but we don’t see any traces of that in this trailer. Instead, we see him riding along with Paulie, which makes sense since Paulie did tell him, “You were like a brother to me,” before they had to gun him down.
Salvatore’s is one of the more tragic stories on the show, so I really hope we get to at least see him happy in the movie.
