James Gandolfini – ‘Sopranos’ star dead at 51
James Gandolfini died of an apparent heart attack in Italy today. The ‘Sopranos’ star has been active in several films since the end of the long-running HBO series that brought him to prominence, including ‘The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3′ and ‘Zero Dark Thirty’. CBS had plans to have him involved as a producer in ‘Taxi-22′, an adaptation of a Canadian comedy. Gandolfini was in Italy for the Taormina Film Festival in Italy. He is survived by his wife Deborah Lin, their daughter, and a teenage son from a previous marriage.
