The man who gave James Gandolfini the most iconic role of his life spoke Thursday at the late actor's funeral. The Sopranos creator, David Chase, decided to read to those in attendance a letter he had written to James after his death.

Chase recalled his time working with Gandolfini on the HBO series and also said he considered him a brother:

"I really feel that, though I’m older than you, that we are brothers. We have different tastes, but there are things we both love, which was family, work, people in all their imperfection, food, alcohol, talking, rage, and a desire to bring the whole structure crashing down. We amused each other."

Chase was the only member from the cast and crew of The Sopranos to speak. Gandolfini's wife and two friends also memorialized him.

We still can't believe the great James Gandolfini is gone!

Oooh la la, what an enticing beauty Bella Heathcote is!

Vogue is really going to kill the September issue game, especially with their Australian cover featuring the fierce Dark Shadows actress.

She makes fronting the mag look easy-as-pie in her red Christian Dior gown and veil, but Bella is no amateur when it comes to looking phenomenal.

Inside the mag, the star expressed everything from moving to El Lay, her upcoming film, Not Fade Away, and working with Baz Luhrmann.

Sopranos Creator Takes On First Film!!

Filed under: Film FlickersSex & The City

Don't get too excited, Sopranos fans, he's NOT taking the Sex and the City route!!

David Chase, creator of the HBO mafia drama, plans to direct his first feature film with Paramount Pictures!!

The untitled script, also written by Chase, is apparently a music-driven coming of age story about a group of guys who form a rock band in the '60s.

That's a pretty vague description, but it already sounds like Almost Famous to us!!!

We'll remain cautiously optimistic until more details emerge!! We still haven't forgiven him for The Sopranos finale!!

What do U think?? Will U go see David Chase's first film as a director??
