ACTOR JAMES GANDOLFINI DIES IN ITALY OF MASSIVE HEART ATTACK
The New York Daily News is reporting that James Gandolfini has suffered a massive heart attack and has died.
A press-shy celeb who got his start as a character actor and became famous relatively late in his career — thanks to his breakout role on “The Sopranos,” Gandolfini has largely avoided the spotlight since the last season of the beloved show aired in 2007.
Gandolfini hit Broadway in 2009 with the Tony Award-winning comedy “God of Carnage.” Gandolfini also movies included “Get Shorty,” “The Mexican” and “Zero Dark Thirty”.
Gandolfini won three Emmy Awards for his sparkling depiction of protagonist Tony Soprano, a mobster trying to balance the mundane stresses of family life and his unusual occupation: organized crime.
