I'm saddened by James Gandolfini's passing. He was a great talent & I owe him. Quite simply, without Tony Soprano there is no Walter White.

Incredible tweet from Bryan Cranston after the death of James Gandolfini. Sopranos is one of my top three TV series of all time, and maybe # 1 (Sopranos, Seinfeld and Mad Men). Breaking Bad makes my top 15 list and Cranston could not be more right about the importance of The Sopranos and the character of Tony Sopranos on the spectrum of TV evolution.
While he will always be Tony Soprano and that is clearly his best role. don't forget:
1. Welcome to the Rileys
2. The Last Castle
3. The Mexican
4. A Civil Action
5. "Bear" in Get Shorty!
RIP, Tony Soprano
RIP, James Gandolfini
