    I loved this actor. He seemed like a decent human being. He was probably the only actor who could've made Tony Soprano someone viewers liked.

    Sad. Don't know, I never watched the show but he just seemed like such a "real" and likable guy. Instinctively, I liked him. I liked his face, it was clear from looking at him that he loved life. RIP and condolences to his family.

    A rare breed by Hollywood standards. Fantastic actor who didn't let being famous go to his head which is why fans adored him. He will truly be missed.

    He lived better than most…he is a fat ugly guy that made millions and got pretty girls because of it….He should have taken better care of himself…he has a two year old daughter, he should have known better…He lived, he died…some people do not make it to 51….
