Tony Blundetto, played by Steve Buscemi, the cousin of mob boss Tony Soprano in the fictional HBO TV series, The Sopranos. He joined the cast in the fifth season.
Tony Blundetto and Tony Soprano grew up together, were close childhood friends, and refered to each other as cousins. Blundetto was a growing force in the mob until the early 1990s when he was arrested and spent 15 years in prison. After he was released on parole, "Tony B." initially decided not to return to his previous life as a gangster and decided to go straight and become a licensed massage therapist. However, after sabotaging his own efforts to open a legitimate massage business, he returned to a life in the mob. Against orders from Tony Soprano, he joined Little Carmine in his turf war with Johnny Sack. Blundetto's out-of-control behavior sparked the ire of Johnny Sack's crew and threats of revenge against the Soprano family. To appease relations with Sack, Tony Soprano killed his cousin with two shotgun blasts to the chest.
