Very sad, not even that old.
Very sad, not even that old.
It's what he's beat known for. I'd say it's a tribute, really.
It was very suspicious!!
neg me for not making light of a guy dying. Nice job, blog.
Rest in peace, Paesan.
Swimming with the fishes...way too soon. RIP
That sucks. Way too young.
Way to young
But yes, he was.
Condolences to his friends and family.
Wow, Edie Falco and now James. Will ye no come back again?
I just finished watching the final season the other day. One of my all time favorite series. This is crazy. Way too young. RIP.
I really need to watch the Sopranos. RIP
And that's why we diet and exercise kids..too sad
stab me in the eye, with a soldering iron...
I kid, too young.
Loved that guy. May he RIP.
51 is far too young. Very sad.
"You don't shit where you eat. And you really don't shit where I eat." - Tony Soprano
Also, from the pilot- "Carmela, my mother is here". Nothing special on its own but he delivered the hell out of that line. Cracks me up every time.
He was very good in The Man who wasn't There as well.
We're doing Sopranos Quotes?
"Check it out: the 'Before'....and the waaay Before..."
Something poetic about dying in the home of your ancestors.
RIP James, what a damn shame.
Although the role that introduced James Gandolfini to wide movie audiences was Virgil in "True Romance", as well as roles in movies like "Get Shorty" and "Crimson Tide", he is inextricably tied to one of the most successful and talked about series in the last 20 years if not ever. He really was very talented.
Very tragic news - 51 is far too young. His daughter was only born last October too. Condolences to his family and friends.
He was also very good in The Last Castle with Robert Reford and a few other people. Very good movie IMO.
While he is and always will be Tony Soprano, I'll never forget the fight scene when Virgil beats the crap out of Patricia Arquette in True Romance. One of the most brutal fight scenes ever made. Sad to see such talent go so soon.
to give him one good shot was so good-humored, and yet so ill-fated. That scene should be played in the locker room of every underdog getting beat at halftime. Belief in yourself/desperation and one well-placed shot can turn the tide.
R.I.P. He will be missed.
Sad day! He played the best character on television that I have ever seen. RIP
and he did so much for Manic depression and his hbo documentary on PTS was fantastic. From what I heard he was a very nice man too. RIP.
Gandolfini was a Rutgers alum and supporter of the football program going so far as to make several commercials. Very sad news. He will be missed.
I'm so broken hearted, I loved his acting and I loved him in the role of Tony Soprano, so sad right now. I guess he was working on a new HBO series too. he wil be missed.
Sad. I just watched an old episode of the Sopranos. It was funny how he pronounced Christopher Chris-to-fa
Loved The Sopranos. This is very sad news.
such a great talent, truly one of the best acting jobs of any TV series playing Tony Soprano. I don't know what it was but I always loved when he would say "Gabagoo"
It was capicola - a thinly-sliced spicy ham.
Well, I know what I'll be watching this weekend. I know that it seems cliche to say The Sopranos was the best show of all time (not trying to start a debate), but I'll say it was by far my favorite. Very sad. I'm actually surprised he was only 51. Also, I hate to hear that he has a young daughter. One of my biggest fears is dying and my kids not being old enough to remember me. Just tragic.
"All due respect, you have no idea what its like to be number one. Every decision you make make effects every facet of every other f***ing thing. Its too much to deal with it, almost. And in the end, you're completely alone to deal with it all."
Strange as it sounds, it learned more about managing people (good and bad) by watching Tony Soprano. I'm very sad right now.
Tremendous actor. Sad news indeed.
He used to appear occasionally on the sidelines of Rutgers games.... sad news.. I was hoping for an encore.
good for him...go out on top...quick death
Very sad. I loved his work. In my view Tony Soprano is the best character in film, ever. Big blow to the tv/movie community
best named yacht ever.
So I guess that's the end of eating cold chicken parm and rigatoni out of the fridge.
"No f*ckin Ziti?"
Silver lining: for those of you with both Apple TV and an HBO subscription, the HBO Go app has been added to the latest update, so you can now watch any episode of the Sopranos.
Was waiting for someone to take a chance and give him another big roll in something else. Man could act, and he didn't need to be waiting around for some lame Sopranos movie.
He has worked steadily since the end of The Sopranos". His movies included Zero Dark Thirty, Killing Them Softly, Welcome to the Rileys, Where the Wild Things Are, The Incredible Burt Wonderstone, and several minor parts.
The man could flat out act and Hollywood knew it. He was not hurting for work and was starting a new series called Criminal Justice.
I was hoping it was an Internet hoax, but sadly it isn't the case this time. RIP sir, you were one hell of an actor. It's amazing how his portrayal made millions root for such a flawed human being. Another brilliant show he was in was called Gun. One of those brilliant but cancelled anyway type of shows.
favorite actors of all time. Im bummed out.
Who downvotes someone's death?
...I guess polometer. Stay classy dude.
I always thought the Sopranos was just a hodgepodge of every mobster movie ever made. But still sad to see him go at 51.
...mobster movie ever made.
sucky sucky news.
“A wrong decision is better than indecision.”
- Tony S.
Tony plays a minor role. Paulie and Christopher attempt to collect money from a Russian hood named Valery. Violence erupts. Valery is shot and dumped into the car trunk, supposedly dead. The plan is to bury him somewhere in the Pine Barrens, a heavily forested area in south NJ. But when Paulie and Christopher open the trunk, they find Valery not only alive, but able to beat them up with a shovel and escape. During a cellphone call Paulie learns that Valery is a former Russian commando who killed "23 Chechnyans." Later, while hunting for Valery in the Pine Barrens, Paulie reminds Christopher to be careful with Valery --- "he killed 23 Czechoslovakians."
he played the hell out of Tony Soprano... arguably the best, and certainly most recognizable, tv character of his generation. i don't know too many people who didn't watch the show. he was great in just about everything he took on. taken way, way too young.
I was in high school when this show first aired and married when it concluded. I own the whole series and made my wife watch it with me in order. Tony Soprano made it even cooler to be Italian. He will be missed.
