Tony Blundetto

Played by Steve Buscemi

"I'm gonna be a licensed massage therapist. It's like a chiropractor, just not as prestigious."

Tony Blundetto is Tony Soprano's first cousin and one of his closest childhood friends. Their mothers were sisters; Tony B.'s mom is Quintina Pollio Blundetto. Although Tony B. is also related to Christopher Moltisanti (Christopher's mother's maiden name was Blundetto), the two Tonys were born the same year and grew up as close as brothers.

Like his cousin, Tony B. was once a rising star in the mob, but his career was cut short at 28 when he was sent to prison for 15 years for hijacking a truck ? a heist Tony S. was supposed to be in on.
