That's new.....saying I live in a cave because I don't watch TV....I thought that was the other way around.Oh! Welcome to the 21st century and civilization outside of a cave! James Gandolfini starred in The Sopranos, one of the most talked about and well known serial dramas...ever.
Well, um Iam not an actor.Good for you.
Make a youtube video of yourself performing a dramatic role, post it on DP and we'll judge you.
There is a good book written about the behind the scenes drama that was prevalent in the making of the Sopranos.More like all the stress on his body from
being fat. If anyone can
take anything from this it's that fat people just don't live very long.
It's sad. He was an incredibly talented actor with amazing stage presence.
Which does not in itself make him one of the "greats".Oh! Welcome to the 21st century and civilization outside of a cave! James Gandolfini starred in The Sopranos, one of the most talked about and well known serial dramas...ever.
we throw the word "great" around too much ... I agree, and in the end, your sympathies have to be for the ones who loved him and he loved ... just as it should be with anyone who passes ... this fascination with actors, sports stars, etc. is not healthy ... I have much more admiration for teachers, doctors, garbage collectors, mechanics, etc. who go to work everyday and do their jobs well for people like us ...Which does not in itself make him one of the "greats".
Paul Newman, one of the greats.
Steve McQueen, one of the greats.
Robert DiNero, one of the greats.
Al Pacino, one of the greats.
Robert Mitchum, one of the greats.
Clint Eastwood, one of the greats.
Marlon Brando, one of the greats.
All actors with great range and more believable in many roles.
Even current actors like Tom Cruise, Sean Penn, Matt Damon have more range.
Maybe its because of his untimely death that people are gushing over him, but all I ever saw out of him was thugs, and a mob boss.
I do sympathize for his children and loved ones.
....from a Droid while out doing things...right now I'm waiting for my sgt to come pick up our team so we can move more trucks and construction equipment since Annual Training ends tomorrow. ...yeah I'm really in cave.Says the guy who regularly uses the internet.
Okay. I just think Gandolfini is a talented enough actor that he should make it through a RIP thread without criticism of his abilities. Maybe that's just me.Well, um Iam not an actor.
And he and I are/were the same age and I havent eaten my way to a heart attack.
So dont get your panties in a bunch, I never said he wasnt any good. Just great is a little bit of a stretch.
