I saw him in two other roles since the Sopranos and was underwhelmed by his character of "Tiny" in Pwnn Warrens life of Huey Long. I guess it was his New Jersey accent that never was eradicated.
I did see him in "Be Cool" a second installation fter "Get Shorty".
His role as Soprano was so much of a milestone on TV that , had Gndolfini done nothing else, his show would be the one by which ALL other cable series would have been compared anywy.
It was that much of a row breaker.
The AM news talking heads were eulogizing him this AM, saying that , while tv comedy would harken to "I Love Lucy" or "Seinfeld" as the beginnings of various genre, the SOPRANOS stands head and shoulder above any TV drama , either Network, Cable, foreign , or dometic
Edgar or Merry, you need to go to a video store (do they even have video stores any more) or Netflix download and rent the SOpranos and binge watch it. Ill bet you get hooked in two episodes
