Hollywood, New York, and everywhere in-between are mourning the death of actor James Gandolfini this evening.
Best known of course for his role as Tony Soprano for six seasons on HBO's The Sopranos, New Jersey-born Gandolfini also played some memorable big screen characters, including Nick Murder in the musical Romance & Cigarettes, Craig Gilbert, the subject of an early reality show in Cinema Verite, just "Mike" in an early break in the 1993 flick Mr. Wonderful and as Winston Baldry, the gay hit man in The Mexican.
There's no official cause of death given for Gandolfini's passing, but it appears to have been a heart attack. He was 51 years old.
In honor of Gandolfini's life and enduring work, here's a scene of the actor "coming out" to Julia Roberts in The Mexican.
