Massive heart attack it sounds like. Far too young indeed.
As sad as this is, it was even sadder when i mentioned it in the public channels of the MMO i'm playing, only to be met with "Who is James Gandolfini, what is The Sopranos?" Fucking kids these days.
That really sucks. Gandolfini was the man.
Ha, just did the same thing in a public WoW channel. "Uh, ok... who was he?"
All that bullshit aside, I'm bummed about this one, even if he'd probably never get another role as great as Tony Soprano.
wow, that's some jimmie rustling content.
I guess it's about time to celebrate his life again...
We owe a lot to the success of the sopranos. Who knows what amazing shows wouldn't exist without sopranos filling the HBO coffers.
I'm re-watching it too on HBO... Signature or whatever. One of their 11 channels. Halfway through Season 4 right now but I'm about 6 episodes behind
i still have never watched one episode of sopranos, but i liked gandolfini from his character actor roles in get shorty, taking of pelham 1, 2 , 3 true romance etc.
Well it is the best show ever, aside from the ending which is as bad as the series was good.
I literally finished re-watching all 6 seasons over the weekend. Show holds up amazingly well, and that son of a bitch was a terrific actor. I don't usually give a fuck about these types of things, but this is pretty sad. Young, successful, and a seemingly good dude. Why the fuck is Chuck Sheen (And Slash/Lohan) etc still alive and this guy dead. God damnit. He was pretty obese though - will be interesting to see the cause of the massive coronary.
wow that sucks great actor, way too young.
"I have recently been examining all the known superstitions of the world, and do not find in our particular superstition (Christianity) one redeeming feature. They are all alike founded on fables and mythology.
Like him in all the roles I've seen him in, but obviously the Sopranos was his greatest. Very sad, but not all that surprising. Dude wasn't exactly in great shape.
This is some sad shit to wake up to.
Show changed entertainment history though. That's for sure.
Anyone else starting to feel old? More and more actors that are actually relevant to me seem to be dying now. Fucking sucks.
The list is pretty short of actors that are forever linked to their iconic characters.
Although RDJ will forever be Iron Man in my mind. Yes, he's done plenty of other great things, but he is a perfect Iron Man, much the way James was a perfect Tony Soprano.
Poor OZ never gets any love. Oz was the "trial run". Sopranos really introduced the style of shows being handled more like extended mini-series, or a series that did not sacrifice pacing, story and plot for the need to fill air time for ads (Last season kind of the exception, but even the last season was miles better than most TV). Given how TV worked before cable, and how long it took to actually do it, it was revolutionary. And as Chaos said, it's now breaking out well past subscription channels (Who did it first because they didn't need Ads)--Mad Men, Breaking Bad, Justified ect.
I loved Oz, except for the troubled last couple of seasons. But I don't think it was transformational in the same way that The Sopranos was. Oz took some serious balls to producein 1996.
Oz was a pioneer, but The Sopranos is when America "got it". It resonated in a way that nothing else has before, or maybe even since.
If the porn isn't high res you can't get horny, but you can hate a guy at 1000 paces without a scope. That's human nature.
I was actually quite bummed when I heard this and that's rarely the case. That show was a game changer for television in general and actually got me writing around that age. RIP Tony
This is still the best Sopranos video on youtube
It's writing like that which led us to Deadwood and the poetic swearings of Al Swearengen.
So sad, funny thing I just started watching the sopranos last week since my bro gave me his hbo-go login, Im 1/2 way through season 2 now. And then I hear this a week later, how fucking sad.
Yeah. Damn Ambien calls are hilarious.
