• Actor James Gandolfini, who died unexpectedly last week at the age of 51, was one of the great artists of his time. His portrayal of mob boss Tony Soprano has been hailed as one of the best television acting performances ever. Gandolfini, a graduate of Rutgers University, was a true Jersey guy, and he was taken too soon. • Another performer who might not have received the critical acclaim of Gandolfini but nevertheless carved out his own little niche, was Slim Whitman, one of the first stars of television infomercials.
