Bobby "Bacala" Baccalieri
Played by Steven R. Schirripa
Robert Baccalieri, Jr. AKA Bobby is a soldier in the Soprano organisation.
He's quiet and sweet tempered, but can threaten a witness with the best of them. His massive weight often brings him scorn from the other wise guys - and Bobby can be quite sensitive about it. But Bobby's weight didn't stop him from wielding a crowbar at a construction site demonstration crack down, or helping Tony find Paulie and Christopher when they were lost in the woods.
Bobby is currently personal assistant to Junior, and runs his loan sharking business. He looks up to Junior as a father figure, and is loyal to the core.
Last season, tragedy struck Bobby when his beloved wife died in an automobile accident, and Bobby subsequently suffered a mental breakdown. But Tony Soprano's opportunistic sister Janice soon swooped in and the pair are now in a relationship.
