We were all left in shock upon the news of James Gandolfini’s tragic passing yesterday.
Now, as fans and Hollywood come around to the realization of his too-soon departure, more and more of his fellow Hollywood co-stars and friends are speaking up in his memory.
God Of Carnage co-star Jeff Daniels released a statement in which he wrote:
"If Broadway has a version of a guy you want in your foxhole, Jim Gandolfini was mine. During our time together in God of Carnage, we played 320 performances together. He didn't miss one. Sadly, I now miss him like a brother."
His other God Of Carnage co-star, Marcia Gay Harden also released the following statement:
"Goodbye to a champion of a man. We are all in shock. He was a great partner, a masterful actor and a loving, generous human being. My prayers go out to his family. He is loved by many and already missed."
Read more moving reactions and tweets…AFTER THE JUMP!!!
"It's truly an honor to have been able to share one of the greatest moments ever in TV history with James Gandolfini. He was an amazing actor—taken way too young—and he'll be missed. Our condolences go out to his family."
Really though… This James Gandolfini passing is so sad. My heart goes out to his family in this time. RIP #takentoosoon
