    Very Sad: Sopranos star James Gandolfini dead at 51

    James Gandolfini has died.

    What a fantastic career he had. Tony Soprano is an unforgettable role. Very sad.

    wow. This surprised me. I agree, really talented guy. He made the show Sopranos what it was. Sheesh, sad indeed, so young.

    He was born to play Tony Soprano. I can't think of a better actor for that role. He was also good in some of the movies he did. RIP James, prayers for your family.

    Yes, very sad. Damn good actor. I honestly think it was his weight affecting his heart. There will never be another one like him.

    Well now he's in the afterlife like Tony Soprano is. I think those two would go in different directions though.

    if there was a Soprano's movie his character would have little to do with it. I believe he was killed in the final episode.

    Agreed he made Sopranos, but I've seen him in other roles and he was barely adequate IMO. Just saying. Still, he was a young man, by my standards. Died way too young. But a great actor, I don't think so. JMO.

    "Welcome to the Rileys"

    I thought that was a great movie, and I thought he did a great job in it.

    I loved him in True Romance as Virgil. He was brutal. RIP
