Tributes: The Stars We've Lost

From Mike Nichols to Robin Williams to Philip Seymour Hoffman, we remember the personalities who've left us


Known most famously for his role as mobster Tony Soprano on the HBO smash The Sopranos, James Gandolfini was "a great talent," HBO execs said in a statement following the actor's shocking death on June 19 at age 51. "He touched so many of us over the years with his humor, his warmth and his humility." Gandolfini, who also appeared in Zero Dark Thirty, The Mexican and All the King's Men, died of an apparent heart attack while in Sicily for the Taormina Film Fest.
