HBO plans to air James Gandolfini tribute

Posted on

The network that cemented James Gandolfini’s iconic-star-status will air a tribute to the late actor this Sunday.

Gandolfini died on June 19 at the age of 51 from a heart attack. Best known for portraying Tony Soprano on HBO’s The Sopranos from 1999-2007, it was a role that scored him a Golden Globe and three Emmys.

HBO will air James Gandolfini: Tribute to a Friend on Dec. 22, from 8:30-9:05 p.m. ET/PT, according to a press release. The actor’s friends and colleagues will honor his memory in the 35-minute-long program. Clips of Gandolfini’s work and behind-the-scenes footage will also be shown.
