James Gandolfini, the New Jersey-bred actor who delighted audiences as mob boss Tony Soprano in The Sopranos has died following a massive heart attack in Italy, a source told the Daily News.
I JUST POSTED THIS..WHY DID MY THREAD GET PULLED?
I don’t know I would not have posted if I saw your thread.
Too bad. He was in town a couple months ago and billeted across the street in the home contracted by Paramount for VIP visitors. I spoke with him twice and he seemed like a likable enough fellow. - RIP
Overuse of capital letters.
No source link and no content.
When I went to post it no one else had posted it, in the time it took me to post this, someone else posted a similar thread.
I apologize if I made a duplicate thread. Just this jersey girl loved this show.
Your thread was done so much better than my rushed job.ha.
Suspicious, even to someone like yours truly who doesn’t watch the idiot box.
RIP Sir. He made Tony Soprano so real you still feel like you might bump into him in the parking lot of Home Depot in Jersey. The best character on one of the best dramatic TV shows ever. Of course, that also made him one of the most typecast actors. You couldn’t watch him in any other movie without thinking of Tony.
Nobody 51 years old has any business dying...New Jersey native, too. Damn!
Wow, 51! Sheesh.
Like the song says, “And all your money won’t another minute buy...”
I never met him but I know a few of the Bada Bing girls shop at my local supermarket, and I know some of the places they filmed,
Apparently, living off of almost nothing but pasta and wine is not good for you.
The guy was bigger than Christie. I'm surprised he made it to this age.
Shame, he was good.
I met him here in L.A. when I was invited for the after party for Season 7. The friendliest dudes were Paulie Walnuts (Tony Sirico) and Gandolfini.
He visited Iraq many years ago for the USO with Sirico and Gandolfini still added the USO and pro-military charities to his own personal charities.
R.I.P. James-—the only mafia character on TV and no one can come close to Tony Soprano.
