James Gandolfini (1961-2013)

Yet another one of those passings that hits you like a sucker punch.

A lot of people will remember him as Tony Soprano. I know him from his fine work in a number of movies: Terminal Velocity, The Mexican, Killing Them Softly (his two scenes were some of the best in the film) and Surviving Christmas (scoff if you will, but he was very good in that movie).

I'm sort of reminded of another of Gandolfini's roles, in Where the Wild Things Are. Some years ago, a smart-assed YouTuber took this casting ball and ran with it:

It goes without saying that he will be missed.
