Sopranos star James Gandolfini has passed away at the age of 51.
In recent years, Gandolfini was attached to possible TV return vehicles such as Criminal Justice (HBO’s adaptation of the BBC series of the same name) and Big Dead Place (an HBO dramedy set in Antartica).
During his estimable run as The Sopranos‘ paterfamilias Tony, Gandolfini earned three Emmys in five tries, as well as a Golden Globe award.
In an email to Deadline, former HBO Chairman and CEO Chris Albrecht, who greenlit the crime family saga, wrote, “Absolutely stunned. I got the word from Lorraine Bracco and just got off with Brad Grey who had just heard from David Chase. We had all become a family. This is a tremendous loss.”
Gandolfini’s recent film credits include last year’s acclaimed Zero Dark Thirty (where he played the CIA director) and the indie Not Fade Away. His post-Sopranos small-screen appearances included HBO’s Cinema Verite and Nickeoldeon’s recently premiered Nicky Deuce TV-movie.
