James Gandolfini

The things I take pleasure in, I can't do.
~Tony Soprano

Actor James Gandolfini Dies

I inhaled the Soprano series via Netflix the summer I left my wasband. I had a tiny apartment in the Twin Cities and, at that time, didn't watch much TV. I sat in a large green chair in my tiny living room and watched episode after episode that summer. Drinking either iced coffee or rum and cokes, depending on my mood and the time of day.

There are certain actors that enthrall. Certain actors that when you discover them in the credits, you sit up and anticipate their arrival on the screen.

So sorry for his family. So sorry for us.

I heard about this yesterday. I was blown away; I hadn't even known he was sick or anything. Oh man, I can tell you one thing: The Sopranos ain't gonna be on anymore. I'm willing to bet that the cast of the show is probably been shocked to hear of his death

He was a good egg and I too inhaled the series. Such a sad sad thing that he is gone, and quite young. :(

Can't help wondering if he had any indications of a heart problem? Surely he wouldn't have gone to Italy if he suspected he could die there. His poor family and the son that found him. How traumatic.
