The entertainment world was stunned Wednesday (June 19) to learn that actor James Gandolfini had died of a heart attack in Italy while on vacation. Tributes immediately began pouring in from his colleagues, but one (not from an actor) stands out.
Holsten’s restaurant in Bloomfield, New Jersey put a “Reserved” sign on the table where Gandolfini and his on-screen family filmed the final scene of HBO’s “The Sopranos,” which was both heralded and lambasted for the way it abruptly ended the award-winning drama.
The photo has gone viral, but we think this is the earliest tweet about it: “Classy move by the folks over at #Holstens
where the famous final scene of #TheSopranos was filmed. Reserved
tonight for #TonySoprano and co. A true #NJ treasure #HBO.”
Couldn’t have said it better ourselves.
