Yesterday, the sad news arrived that Sopranos’ star James Gandolfini had suffered a heart attack while on vacation in Italy. His 13 year old son, Michael, found him. An autopsy will be performed to find out the exact causes of said heart attack.
Gandolfini had moderate success with his career until he landed the role of Tony Soprano in HBO’s The Sopranos. A role that won him three Emmys and a Golden Globe. A native of Westwood New Jersey Gandolfini had appeared in such films as The Mexican, Get Shorty, True Romance, Where the Wild Things Are, Zero Dark Thirty, and Killing Them Softly. He had completed Animal Rescue but the film will not be released until next year.
In a recent interview Gandolfini had this to say about his career: “I seek out good stories, basically — that’s it. The older I get, the funnier-looking I get, the more comedies I’m offered. I’m starting to look like a toad, so I’ll probably be getting even more soon.”
Mania’s heart goes out to the Gandolfini family and their friends.
