Christ, James Gandolfini 's dead........ He was only 51
Had just literally finished watching an episode clicked on the news and I was like holy s*** he's dead RIP.
yep, suddenly I feel the need to go jogging and take skateboarding back up.......one life and all that
Very sad not much older than me .
Sounds like he had a baby back in October with his new wife too, sad news indeed.
Watched "In The Loop" last night, then woke up to this news
Just started watching the sopranos. Awesome actor, RIP
I did wonder if it was a hit...
Watched Zero Dark Thirty last week, and thought wow, he's really gained some weight.
Massive shame that is. He was a great actor and the sopranos was the finest American series yet.
Oh dear, RIP
stanfree, thats a great scene
Bloody shocked, watching the re-runs on Atlantic, just about to watch the episode where Chris and Paulie are lost in the woods.....as I remember it being a good episode...
Blimey! 51? That's no age
A great actor! He's superb in In the Loop. How many actors could comfortably pull off a part like that? Slotting in with such an established and respected cast like the Thick of It, and looking like he'd always been part of it?
Very sad. RIP.
That's sad. Not much older than me too...
I think I'll watch True Romance tonight, he was brilliant in that.
RIP big man
Just watching the final series of The Sopranos now, for the first time, so no spoilers please...
Very sad, great actor.
Really does focus the mind, you can everything in the world but if you don't look after yourself it gets cut terribly short.
Very sad , quality actor .
Some memorable lines spoken by the late James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano in "The Sopranos":
—"You know my feelings: Every day is a gift. It's just, does it have to be a pair of socks?"
—"What kind of (expletive) human being am I, if my own mother wants me dead?"
—About his father: "The belt was his favorite childhood development tool."
—"Nothing beats popping up some Orville Redenbachers and listening to 'Men in Black.'"
—"Nowadays, everybody's gotta go to shrinks and counselors, and go on 'Sally Jessy Raphael' and talk about their problems. What happened to Gary Cooper? The strong, silent type."
—"I gotta be honest with you. I'm not getting any satisfaction from my work."
—"I'm like King Midas in reverse. Everything I touch turns to (expletive)."
—"You got any idea what my life would be worth if certain people found out I checked into a laughing academy?"
—"When you're married, you'll understand the importance of fresh produce."
—"It wasn't like it was friggin' Cobain. It was just a little suicidal gesture, that's all."
Very sad, RIP. I'll be digging out the box set tonight then, there goes any spare time in the next month or two!
I was/am a Sopranos tragic. Secretly, I always harboured a dream that they would get back together for one last season or failing that a movie. I always imagined it with Tony on trial or in jail, with wait for it . . . Camilla running the family, preparing for Tony's trial etc. As I said . . . a tragic.
Oh well, never going to happen. RIP James Gandolfino.
Sad indeed and 51’s no age.
One of my favourite sketches in the Soprano’s was Tony and Chrissy getting ready to dispose of Ralph’s body in the bath. It’s Tony’s reaction to Chrissy when he discovers Ralph wore a wig. I was in tears of laughter – and had to rewind it a few times.
We just finnished watching the entire series a week or so ago. Really sad to hear of his passing.

I always thought they might revive it with AJ deciding to follow in his fathers footsteps. Failing that, I was hoping for Gandolfini to make a cameo appearance in Lilyhammer
AMAZON already pushing Sopranos box set
stanfree imo that was one of the best episodes.
That's the episode that immediately came to mind when I heard the sad news.
