    Actor James Gandolfini died today in Italy at the age of 51, of an apparent heart attack. Gandolfini is most noted for his role as the mobster, Tony Soprano, in the HBO series, The Sopranos.

    He was a great actor, and he passed way too young. Rest in peace.

    I was sorry to hear this and that Vince Flynn died too. He was great as Tony and seemed liked a good guy in person.

    Vince Flynn, Slim Whitman, and now James Gandolfini in the same day...

    It's going to be a weird night in Heaven tonight.

    Never watched the show but heard good things. From what I did see of him on TV, James always seemed like he may not be in the best of health, weight and cardiovascular-wise. Prayers for his family.

    Spent countless hours in front of the tube watching The Sopranos as a younger, single man. It's the only show I've ever watched that I couldn't wait to see what happened next.

    Brilliance? The combination of screenwriting, production, and acting that made you feel for Tony Soprano. It was amazing how he could make you feel for him, how he was a protagonist of sorts despite "that thing of theirs." When Melfi was attacked, you wanted Tony to get involved and fight thuggery with thuggery. You ended up liking him so much you could excuse his crimes. Brilliant.

    I think folks are going to be watching The Sopranos for decades as folks like us introduce our kids to it when they're old enough. That's the difference between being good & being great--in 50 years someone in a room of 30 people will have heard of The Sopranos.

    Salud.

    You hit the nail on the head. Years from now people will still refer to him as Tony Soprano, fondly. That's a gift some actors have. You forget they are playing a role it comes so naturally and you lose yourself in the story. That's great entertainment.
