The iconic and inimitable star of The Man Who Wasn't There, Romance & Cigarettes, Killing Them Softly and Zero Dark Thirty, and, of course, TV's The Sopranos, James Gandolfini, died yesterday while on vacation in Rome. He was 51. Cause of death is reported to be heart attack. One of the most valued character actors in film, he was also one of the most successful actors on TV, with his performance as Tony Soprano earning him three Emmys, five Screen Actors Guild awards, three TV Critics Awards and a Golden Globe. Upcoming projects to be released include Nicole Holofcener's first film since Please Give, and crime drama Animal Rescue, so we've still got two more Gandolfini performances on film to look forward to.
