The creator of “The Sopranos” said at James Gandolfini’s funeral that the actor brought the traits of a sad boy, “amazed and confused,” to the role of Tony Soprano.
The services for Gandolfini, 51, are expected to be held at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in Upper Manhattan.
Hospital officials in Rome say actor James Gandolfini arrived at the hospital at 10:40 p.m. Wednesday and was pronounced dead at 11 p.m. after resuscitation efforts in the ambulance and hospital failed.
“I do want to say to the people out there, the thing that got me about (Gandolfini) was he was such a humble guy,” actor and writer Chazz Palminteri told WFAN host Mike Francesa on Thursday. “Just a humble, nice, really sweet man.”
