It’s impossible to think of James Gandolfini without thinking of Tony Soprano, the complex family patriarch and mob boss of HBO’s long-running award-winning hit “The Sopranos.” A New Jersey native, Gandolfini graduated from Rutgers University, where he worked his way through school as a bouncer at a nightclub. He got his start on the stages of Broadway theaters before making the jump to film and television. In 1999, Gandolfini made his debut as Tony Soprano on “The Sopranos” and ultimately earned three lead actor Emmy awards before the series wrapped in 2007. Other James Gandolfini appearances occurred in the films “The Mexican” with Julia Roberts and Brad Pitt, “8mm” with Nicolas Cage and “True Romance,” which was written by Quentin Tarentino. Gandolfini resides in New York City.
