James Gandolfini's funeral will be held across the street from Columbia on Thursday. The services are set for 10 a.m. at the Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine, located at 1047 Amsterdam Avenue.
The New Jersey-born actor, best known for his role on "The Sopranos," died of a heart attack on Wednesday in Rome, according to a family spokesman. He was 51 years old.
Gandolfini won three Emmys, a Golden Globe, and a SAG Award for his portrayal of Tony Soprano, a tough mob boss who moonlighted as a waste management consultant and harbored an affinity for ducks. The Writer's Guild of America named "The Sopranos," which aired from 1999 to 2007, the best TV show ever written. In a recent statement, "Sopranos" creator David Chase described Gandolfini as a "genius."
Gandolfini's screen credits include "Zero Dark Thirty," "True Romance," and "Not Fade Away."
