My Favorite Tony Soprano Moments

By now everything that’s needed to be said has been said about the super awful passing of actor James Gandolfini at the age of 51. Lots of people die every day, heck lots of actors die every day, but for some reason the death of the man who made Tony Soprano an icon is really, really upsetting me.

No snark today, just a few clips of some of my favorite moments from The Sopranos, the TV show I consider the best ever made in my lifetime. Be warned–some of this is violent and there are lots of swears. NSFW.

Tony Soprano kills Ralph Cifaretto. Can’t say I was sad to see him go.

Tony could be a good guy, but more often than that he knew how to be a mean bastard, especially to his sister Janet. The scene above bled into the closing credits with the amazing song “I’m Not Like Anybody Else” by The Kinks. Clip of that below.

 

And now we need to lighten the mood. Some of the best moments were when Tony was being a husband to Carmela and father to Meadow and AJ. Comedy gold when AJ asserts his new life philosophy.

 

God I am going to miss him. James Gandolfini was a great actor and a true class act; in addition to his day job he was very active in veterans affairs.

A huge loss.
