As Vincent Pastore knows all too well, time cannot heal all wounds. Over two years after his Sopranos costar James Gandolfini died suddenly at age 51, Pastore still thinks of his friend frequently.

"I think about Jimmy every day," Pastore told PEOPLE on Tuesday night at the premiere of Staten Island Summer, the Netflix comedy that Saturday Night Live funnyman Colin Jost penned.

"I've got Jimmy's watch," he added, putting out his wrist to show off his timepiece. "Yeah, Jimmy gave me this."

Former Sopranos Star Lorraine Bracco: James Gandolfini's Death Was a Wake-Up Call

Originally posted 04/03/2015 09:45AM

Motivated by personal tragedy, former Sopranos star Lorraine Bracco turned her life around with diet and exercise.

In her new self-help book, To the Fullest: The Clean Up Your Act Plan to Lose Weight, Rejuvenate and Be the Best You Can Be, Bracco, 60, recalls how James Gandolfini's untimely death from a heart attack in 2013 was a wake-up call.

The death of her parents, too, weighed heavily on the actress; in 2011, they died within nine days of each other. (Bracco, who played Dr. Jennifer Melfi on The Sopranos, writes in To the Fullest that Dominic Chianese, who played Uncle Junior in the HBO mob drama, sang at their funerals.)

The Sopranos: Did Tony Soprano Survive or Not?

Originally posted 08/28/2014 07:15AM

It shouldn't matter whether Tony Soprano lived or died after the controversial 2007 finale of The Sopranos.

That's the latest from David Chase, the creator of the classic HBO drama, who was compelled to issue a statement after Vox quoted him as saying the New Jersey mobster lived after the screen went black in the series ender.

On Wednesday, Vox wrote a long tone poem about the infamous finale and finished it off with an eye-opening quote from Chase about whether Tony, played by the late James Gandolfini, was actually dead.

Justin Timberlake Doesn't Think He's Cool

Originally posted 11/12/2013 08:00AM

While he seems like the very embodiment of "cool," Justin Timberlake doesn't use that word to describe himself.

"Listen, I'm not cool," the singer, dancer and actor says in the "Men of The Year" issue of GQ. "Being cool is about keeping your blood pressure steady. So no. Don't be cool. Be passionate. Be dedicated. Be tenacious. Be uncompromising. Be pissed. Be happy. Be sad."

Timberlake, 32, goes on to explain that not being "cool," often means doing the opposite of what's expected of him, like playing a high-stakes gambler in Runner Runner alongside Ben Affleck or appearing in sketches on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon every night for Timberweek.
