He topped off his look with a pair of white sneakers and Paulie Walnuts' iconic pose from the series. Colin struck his pose alongside his wife, Samantha Bryant, dressed as a witch with an all-black outfit.

The actor accompanied the snapshot with a caption where he wished his fans a happy Halloween celebration. He also added a line from a scene in "The Sopranos," where Walnuts was trying to kill a Russian mob member who later escaped. He wrote:

As expected, the post thrilled fans and followers who took to the comments section to leave their thoughts about his choice of costume. While many fans noted that he nailed the costume, others simply reminisced about their favorite moments from "The Sopranos."

"The Sopranos" premiered in 1999 and quickly became a fan favorite throughout its six-year run. The series was centered around the life of a mob boss, Tony Soprano.

However, the series also highlighted the life of some other characters, including Paulie Walker, who became popular for his temper and intelligence, and funny performances.

The legendary Paulie Walnuts character was portrayed by actor Tony Sirico who had a rough life when he was younger. Like the theme of "The Sopranos", Sirico was involved in numerous crimes in his youth.

Later on, Sirico was arrested and would later go on to serve time in prison. It was there that he fell in love with acting after seeing a performance by a theatrical troupe.

Following his release, Sirico ventured into acting and appeared in several movies that were centered around crimes. Some of his earliest acting credits include "The Godfather" and "GoodFellas."

However, it was not until 1999 when he appeared in "The Sopranos" that Sirico was launched into the spotlight, and over time, he went on to do well for himself in Hollywood.
