Tony Soprano Is Dead

This can’t happen. James Gandolfini, known the most for his mobster boss impersonation, died in Italy after a heart attack. I couldn’t believe when I found out, because the guy was incredibly young, 51 is not an age to say good bye. One of my favorite actors, James Gandolfini already made history. Contrary with the violent but cool Tony Soprano, he was a pacifist in real life. Raised and lived in New Jersey, he will be remembered in his neighborhood as the tough guy who save a woman from being mugged on a bad lit street.

I have never known that he has been cast originally in the role of “Hanratty” in Spielberg’s Catch Me if You Can. It is actually better that he became famous as “Tony Soprano”, the troubled North Jersey mob boss, a management consultant” as he described himself in the series. He is so stressed that he seeks the help of a psychiatrist and the plot rounds from what he is telling her.

I have seen him, or better, I have noticed him before the TV show, in 8 MM, near Nicolas Cage and Joaquin Phoenix. He was a good actor. I last remember him in Zero Dark Thirty as the CIA Director. That was a movie I liked, even it seemed very unrealistic, but it was made to justify something. Nonetheless I liked the movie, I repeat and I also liked Gandolfini in his short appearance. Tough guy, warm and discreet smile.



Not quite a fan of what happened above, but it is of significance. If you help the State against terrorists, you can get away with crime. James Gandolfini didn’t agree of the series and the movie, being in contradiction with his non-violent beliefs.

RIP James!
