Such a sudden and unexpected loss. I don't think I recall ever hearing about health troubles with him. A talent that will be missed.

Holsten's, the restaurant where the final scene of The Sopranos series finale was filmed, is reserving "Tony's" table tonight.

This sucks. I haven't even made the time to see The Sopranos, and I'm still comfortable offering Gandolfini genuine praise as an actor. He's been terrific in just about every role of his I've seen, and he'll be missed.

Gandolfini is truly an actor that proves there are no small roles; just small actors (and that's NOT a pun about his weight).

R.I.P. James Gandolfini
Besides being a very fine actor, he also seemed to be a very nice guy also.

Shocked and saddened to hear of this. He was incomparable in the role of Tony Soprano and was always highly watchable in any other role. It's particularly sad for his family, as he has an infant daughter. I'll be doing a Sopranos box-set binge this weekend.

Re: RIP James Gandolfini?

If he had done nothing else but The Sopranos, he would be remembered for creating one of the most memorable television characters ever. If the audience had not been able to sympathize on some level with that essentially dishonest, immoral and violent character, the show would not have worked. Somehow he made it work, and made TV history. Sad to see him go so young.

Re: RIP James Gandolfini?

Nobody expected this, now. Just eleven days back I saw him in VIOLET AND DAISY with Saiorse Ronan and Alexis Bledel. It's pretty much out of theatres already but he was outstanding in his supporting role.

Wilder still, the news broke literally four hours after I received DVDs of TERMINAL VELOCITY and 8MM, both featuring Gandolfini before his breakout parts.

If you can find the films, he's also impressive in NIGHT FALLS ON MANHATTAN and William Friedkin's 12 ANGRY MEN remake.
