‘Today, we cut to black': HBO pays tribute to James Gandolfini
As family, friends and fans mourn “Sopranos” star James Gandolfini, HBO is paying tribute on Twitter.
The Daily Dot describes the final scene of “The Sopranos.”
In the final scene of HBO’s The Sopranos, mob boss Tony Soprano is seen sitting in Holsten’s Diner in Bloomfield, N.J., with his son and wife, awaiting the arrival of his daughter. “Don’t Stop Believin’” plays on the jukebox. Then the chime atop the diners front door rings, Soprano looks up with a face of concern, and the screen smash cuts to black for a few seconds before the credits roll.
The HBO website also appears black for a few seconds today before cutting to this:
We’re all in shock and feeling immeasurable sadness at the loss of a beloved member of our family. James Gandolfini was a special man, a great talent, but more importantly a gentle and loving person who treated everyone no matter their title or position with equal respect. He touched so many of us over the years with his humor, his warmth and his humility. Our hearts go out to his wife and children during this terrible time. He will be deeply missed by all of us.
