Johnny Sacramoni

From Academic Kids

This article is about a fictional character from The Sopranos.

Johnny "Sack" Sacramoni (usually just Johnny Sack), played by Vince Curatola, is the underboss of the New York family in the fictional HBO TV series, The Sopranos.

Johnny Sack is a smart captain in the New York family underneath Carmine Lupertazzi and is a friend and compatriot of Tony Soprano's. Although the New York and New Jersey families are technically rivals, relations between the two families have been peaceful for some time. Johnny Sack works to try and maintain the peace with the other families, reasoning that peace between the families means prosperity for all the families. He is not, however, above stirring up trouble in Iago-like fashion, to sow dissent and suspicion among the ranks of the Soprano family.

But while Johnny Sack usually maintains his cool, he is very sensitive about his wife, Ginny, who has a problem with obesity. Johnny becomes violently angry when any remarks are made about Ginny's weight problem. He once ordered a hit put on Ralph Cifaretto for making one such off-color joke, although he later changed his mind and called off the hit, thus saving Ralphie's life, and also, unwittingly, his own, since Tony, for financial rather than personal reasons, had planned to hit Johnny in order to protect Ralphie.

Johnny has chafed under Carmine's leadership of the family, particularly over Carmine's apparent plans to name his hedonistic and catachresis-prone son Carmine Jr. as his successor. During the abortive war with the Soprano crew over Tony's Frelinghuysen Avenue operation, he authorized Tony to arrange to have Carmine assassinated. Much to Johnny's chagrin, Tony accepted Carmine's offer of settlement and cancelled the hit.

Following the death of Carmine, Johnny's crew engaged in a bitter turf war over New York with Carmine's son, "Little" Carmine. After heavy causualties on both sides, the conflict was brought to an end with Little Carmine surrendering control of New York. However, his moment of victory was cut short when he was arrested by the FBI. His future remains uncertain.
