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

Plus CRIMSON TIDE and GET SHORTY, of course.

Remember the love he showed for his horse in Season Four of THE SOPRANOS? Tony at his most human.....

It's truly awful that his last role was Burt Wonderstone. Kind of Like that god awful wagon train for john candy and Beverly HIlls Ninja for Chris Farley

Great great actor. Tony Soprano was not a character that could have been played by just any actor who could do a New Jersy/Italian accent. Gandolfini made audiences hate Tony in one scene and turn around and practically weep for him in another.

So sad to hear about his death, especially at such a young age.

He had to go--

He had completed two other feature films before his death. His last film, Animal Rescue, with Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace, is scheduled for release next year.

Re: RIP James Gandolfini?

VIOLET AND DAISY was made in 2011 but just released two weeks ago. (It's already gone.)

I haven't seen WONDERSTONE, but can that be as bad as having Sean Connery's last film be THE LEAGUE OF EXTRAORDINARY GENTLEMEN? He's enjoying retirement so much, he's said he'll never come back to film. He turned down SKYFALL.....

He was a great actor and a great Jersey boy. You hear stories all the time of people bumping into him down that area of the state, and no one ever has anything to say but complements on how polite and nice he was. R.I.P. Mr Gandolfini.
