February 12th is Mardi Gras, but did you know that today is also James Gandolfini Appreciation Day?
Gandolfini broke out in his turn as hitman Virgil in True Romance and has appeared in 49 films over the course of his career. For all of his work ranging from The Last Boy Scout to Zero Dark Thirty, he is most easily recognized as Tony Soprano.
Mr. Gandolfini has proven to be the kind of actor that you want to appear in any role and has the kind of range that would make other actors blush. Whether he plays a tough-as-nails general or a neurotic mess, Gandolfini brings the gravitas.
To properly celebrate James Gandolfini Appreciation Day, check out his most recent roles in Killing Them Softly and Zero Dark Thirty.
