Its messed up, but there always seems to be summer shockers in terms of celebrity deaths.

In a morbid sort of way, there are people who actually have like death pools for celebrities.

Too bad to know there will never be a Sopranos movie now.

Gandolphi is especially shocking, because he wouldn't be a candidate for a "death pool," like Britney once was and Lindsey, etc., just a down-to-earth family man with young children. Gandolphi was so multi-talented, yet such a good-hearted person. He tried so hard to bring attention to our veterans and wounded vets, even making a documentary some years back, which I am now going to watch again.

At the bottom of that page there is a video with him at the Actor's Studio, I think it is called, and he is great in the interview and with answering the acting students' questions at the end. I think what upsets me so is how young he was and how much more potential there was there.

I would have loved a Sopranos movie, because I also adore Edie Falco. i bet she is also crushed today.

With Flynn, I knew he was fighting prostate cancer, but it is still not any easier, losing one so young and with (also) so much more potential. And another really kind-hearted, down to earth person (of course, because he was from MN, lol)..

Anyway, I know I do not know these people, but it is just the suddenness and the ages that really got to me this time. Sad

I did not watch the Sopranos, but I did catch part of one show. I'm sure he will be missed by many. He was so young too.
