    'Sopranos' star James Gandolfini dead at 51

    "The Sopranos" star James Gandolfini has died at the age of 51.


    According to sources close to HitFix and confirmed by Deadline.com, the three-time Emmy winner had a heart attack while on vacation in Italy.

    When David Chase cast Gandolfini as anxiety-prone mobster Tony Soprano, Gandolfini was a veteran character actor best known for roles in films like "Get Shorty," "Crimson Tide" and "True Romance," but he became an immediate star when "The Sopranos" premiered in in 1999.


    Through Gandolfini's portrayal, Tony Soprano became one of the iconic characters in television history and the actor was nominated for six acting Emmys, winning in 2000, 2001 and 2003.


    Since "The Sopranos" ended, Gandolfini has worked in a producing capacity for HBO, earning Emmy nods for the documentary "Alive Day Memories: Home From Iraq" and the telefilm "Hemingway and Gellhorn," while the premium cable network made multiple attempts to develop new series projects for him to act in.

    Feature credits for Gandolfini included "In the Loop," "The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3," "Where the Wild Things Are" and "Killing Them Softly."


    Stay tuned, obviously, for more details as we learn them.

    One of the only actors I actually liked, therefore I will forgo the usual mindless attempts at dark humour and simply say R.I.P.

    You know, while I of course do not wish ill on anyone, I have also never been prone to becoming particularly emotional about the death of a celebrity. I mean, I don't know them personally, we aren't friends, and it is what it is. Yet, this one fills me with a keen sense of loss. I never met Mr. Gandolfini, and yet, he spent years in my living room. He brought my own family together to bond over this one particular thing that we all loved. And he had so much more left ahead of him. He cut to black entirely too soon. I raise my glass to Mr. Gandolfini. Rest in peace, sir.
