Nooooo! I just can’t take this sad news.
James Gandolfini, everyone’s favorite TV mob boss, Tony Soprano has died at the age of 51.
Three-time Emmy winner James Gandolfini has died in Italy at the age of 51 of a possible heart attack. According to HBO, he was on vacation at the time. The “Sopranos” actor appeared recently in “Zero Dark Thirty” and “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.” He had been working on Fox Searchlight’s “Animal Rescue,” now in post-production, HBO show “Criminal Justice” as well as CBS show “Taxi 22.”
Gandolfini had six Emmy lead drama actor nominations as well as a Golden Globe for his work in the “Sopranos,” which ended in 2007. Among his film roles were “Mr. Wonderful,” “The Man Who Wasn’t There,” and “True Romance.”
He is survived by his wife, Deborah Lin, a son and a baby daughter.
I loved this guy.
If you haven’t seen him in the classic film True Romance, put it in your queue now.
