Sorry for the random reply, and I know it's probably been discussed before.  I really didn't know where to put it so here it goes. 

I would love to have seen James Gandolfini, play the role of John Stone. I think he would have nailed it. He is one of my all-time favorite actors. It wasn't only for The Sopranos, even though it is my favorite show ever. I am currently on my yearly binge of watching it. I can practically quote every line of every episode. Anyway, back to my point, James Gandolfini was a brilliant actor and had a very wide range. I always imagine him playing Stone like he did Kevin Finnerty , in the episode 'Join The Club.' John Turturro has done a great job, don't get me wrong, I would have just loved to have see Gandolfini, play the role.

Then there was the movie, 'The Drop.' It also has Tom Hardy in it. He played a great role as a down and out former ' inside guy' The way he played that role was great and I think he could have played off that and incorporated it into the Stone character. If you haven't seen it, definitely check it out. It was the last thing he filmed before he passed.

I wonder if the drop in quality from the pilot (Gandolfi 's scenes were re-filmed with Turturro) was due to his absence. I did like the show, overall, but for me it failed to live up to that brilliant first episode.
