James Gandolfini passed away today at 51 while in Italy. The cause of his death is not confirmed. (Some are reporting a stroke while others a heart attack).
He was most notably Tony Soprano from The Sopranos...which reminded me of the last scene from the series. It's obvious to anyone who watched the show that he gets whacked, but the fact that the scene just goes black without you truly knowing what goes on is a little more telling of real life. Fans were pretty peeved when they saw the end (I know I was), but I get it a little more now. Lights out. That's it. Sometimes you don't even see it coming.
