The late, great James Gandolfini will always be remembered as Tony Soprano -- and it’s unquestionably his best role -- but he was also one of the best character actors in movies. After he exploded on the scene with ‘The Sopranos’ he was asked to do meatier roles in films, but as a television star transitioning into cinema, he often made films that weren’t big hits or didn’t attract much attention. So it’s worth pointing out five roles he had in films that you may have missed, especially if you’re looking for something to watch in memorial.

Remembering James Gandolfini, the Reluctant Tough Guy

James Gandolfini's passing at the relatively young age of 51 comes at a shock. I hope it isn't too inappropriate to say that the startling news reminds me of the ending of the show with which he'll forever be most closely associated, 'The Sopranos.'
It's the shock of an abrupt cut-to-black, followed by emptiness.
In 2012, Gandolfini gave two outstanding film performances in 'Killing Them Softly' and 'Not Fade Away,' and while neither were widely seen, I was definitely looking forward to a post-'Sopranos' career of wildly divergent and interesting turns from a man who didn't need to make any more money and had the acting chops to take on challenging and unique roles.
