Personal Quote:

[on the death of James Gandolfini] James Gandolfini gave the greatest performance in the history of television. He was also a kind man. Condolences to his family. See more »

Trivia:

He left the television series The West Wing (1999). Reports vary as to why, but it seems to have been a combination of salary dispute and screen-time dispute (the character he plays got less focus on the series in more recent episodes). He later appeared in the first 16 episodes of the next season, though. See more »
