For real. Literally too young. People need to litereally get into shape. Being literally overweight litereally does literally kill people every day. Literally.

Also, talking about a person's weight the day they die literally makes you an ass.

Read his bio and you'll see what a sad, pathetic place the US has become.

James grew up in Park Ridge, NJ,  a suburb of New York City.  His parents were Italian immigrants.  His father was a mason, and his mother worked in the cafeteria if a local public school.   After high school, Gandolfini earned a degree from Rutgers University.

"So what?", you say.  A couple of generations ago, working class people could afford to BUY their own homes in neat little town, raise a family, and send their kids off to State U.  Today the average college grad would be hard pressed to buy a home in Park Ridge, and most kids leave school tens of thousands in debt.

So how's that supply side stuff working out for you Joe/Jane American?

valkore: peachpicker: Few actors Italians in recent memory have embodied an Italian character so fully as he did Tony Soprano. I enjoyed him in everything I found him in, and I will miss his work.

FTFY.


If that's all you took away from 86 episodes of nuanced, full-spectrum characterization, I honestly feel bad for you. It was a brilliant sustaned performance, and I'm far from the only one who thinks so. From The AV Club:

"Tony Soprano was, like all humans, a complicated mess, and James Gandolfini made the character the most complete realization of that ineffable human condition in the history of the medium. Beneath the superficial exterior of the 'mob boss'--as shallow an archetype as was ever created--Gandolfini found bottomless layers: the anxious father, the affection-starved son, an alternately loving and terrible husband, a helpless romantic, a coldblooded pragmatist, an arrested-adolescent goofball, a raging bull, and on and on. That he contained these multitudes so effortlessly is what made Tony Soprano real."

ParagonComplex: Carth: ParagonComplex: Carth: 51 is too young. Get in shape people being overweight is literally killing people everyday.

For real. Literally too young. People need to litereally get into shape. Being literally overweight litereally does literally kill people every day. Literally.

Also, talking about a person's weight the day they die literally makes you an ass.

Just like you can't talk about gun control on days of mass shootings right?

It's 100% certain that if a mass shooting takes place that a gun was involved. It isn't 100% certain that a person has a heart attack because of weight issues. Could have been heart disease or something else genetic. Even skinny people drop dead of heart attacks. I'd have said the same thing if you implied he was a drug addict or any thing else. Poor taste is poor taste.


But it is 100% certain that obesity increases the risk for heart attacks and kills thousands of people a year well before they need to die.

I agree we can't be sure Gandolfini died because of his weight but that doesn't mean it isn't worth mentioning. We can't be sure  gun control measures would stop mass shootings but it is still a topic talked about every time there is a tragedy. The reason both are brought up isn't out of disrespect to the dead but to try and preserve the living.

As for poor taste? You've been on fark 8 years. my comments are tasteful compared to many in RIP threads.

MayoSlather: The Wire is overrated. The Sopranos is infinitely more watchable.


The Wire was underrated, actually, if we're sticking with the traditional meaning.  You just can't bear to watch Baltimore.  Don't fault yourself, nobody can.

The Wire and the Sopranos are too different to compare on one parallel field.  As far as watchability goes, the Wire and Sopranos used similar hooks. The Wire had some more grounded and honed down writing, and the Sopranos would shoot into orbit every once in awhile, which was great.  If anything Sopranos, Oz, and Six Feet Under are closer in style and dialogue.  I'd only compare the Wire with Game of Thrones, and that's a comparison I'm struggling with nailing down at the moment.


Not that it matters, they're all great television.

Check him out in The Mexican some time, an under appreciated movie.  He's got a really nice piece of work there (also, Brad Pitt's broken/non-existent Spanish is perfect).

I forgot that he had so many great scenes with Brad Pitt. True Romance, The Mexican, Killing Them Softly (which wasn't "great," but was still decent and the performances were amazing).

Klippoklondike: He was also in The Man Who Wasn't There with Billybob Thornton


I loved that movie. I've never met another person who saw it, though.

Carth: 51 is too young. Get in shape people being overweight is literally killing people everyday.


Agreed. I'm sick of people telling me (as if I am stupid to eat healthy food and exercise) that they don't want to get old and die a slow death. So, they want to die a slow life while they are still young?? The other day I was running (not bragging, I'm talking about a chubby girl in a baggy old tshirt doing a 12 minute mile) and a guy yells at me 'What- are you trying to live forever?'

WTF?

fullyautomatic: This is why I stay in shape and stay skinny at age 31... and I will be at 40 and 50 and beyond. Kinda surprised he made it this far.


Lol, no you won't.

That sucks. He still had years of work he could have done. I only hope he died after having a decent time on vacation.

Crazy that he was only 51.... He's barely 10 years older than me, and i still feel like a kid in many ways, and he seemed like an old man.

mechgreg: I'll take that one. He didn't die. A surprise twist where Tony dies is super hackey writing. And David Chase is a lot of things but he wasn't a hack.


I dunno, I'm no film scholar but this was pretty persuasive. Besides, wasn't the whole buzz leading up to the finale the question of whether he'd get whacked? The only "twist" here was the ambiguity. Plenty of people would have bet that he would be (unambiguously) killed as part of the dramatic conclusion to the show about mobsters.

Then again, I'm one of those douchebags who thinks the top falls at the end of  Inception, so...

Atomic Spunk: The biggest shock to me was that he was only 51 years old. I thought the guy was in his late 50s to early 60s. Very sad, though.


I had the same thought!  So he was what, only 37 when Sopranos started?

Check him out in The Mexican some time, an under appreciated movie.  He's got a really nice piece of work there (also, Brad Pitt's broken/non-existent Spanish is perfect).

The best explanation I've heard was that you the viewer, was whacked.


Its years later and several interpretations are still commonly discussed. It meant whatever you wanted it to. It took tons of shiat at the time but what a way to let your series live on.

Sincere condolences to family, friends, loved ones, neighbors, co-workers and fans worldwide. I'm so sorry to read this news Mr.Gandolfini. I will prepare an lavish Italian meal this week end in your honor. We will eat, we will drink, we will toast to your memory. And we will shed a tear for your loss.

I could pick out 100 Hollywood POS's I'd rather have gone. R.I.P.
