Comedy writer and producer Armando Iannucci, who directed James Gandolfini in the 2009 film In The Loop, has paid tribute to the actor:
People were surprised James Gandolfini was so different from Tony Soprano. That's because he was a great actor. Warm, gentle and funny.
Gandolfini's role as Lieutenant General Miller in In The Loop was a contrast to his performances as mob boss Tony Soprano in the hit series The Sopranos.
