Private wake for James Gandolfini

Posted: Updated:

PARK RIDGE, N.J. (AP) -- A private viewing for James Gandolfini took place Wednesday in a small northern New Jersey town.

The invitation-only wake for family and friends was held at the Robert Spearing Funeral Home in Park Ridge between 3 p.m. and 9 p.m.

The 51-year-old star of "The Sopranos," who grew up in nearby Westwood, died last Wednesday in Italy.

Broadway theaters will dim their marquee lights at 8 p.m. in memory of the actor, who earned a Tony Award nomination in 2009 for his role in the award-winning "God of Carnage."

Gandolfini's funeral will be held Thursday at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in New York City.

    Robert De Niro says Tribeca Film Festival is his passion

    Wednesday, April 16 2014 8:01 AM EDT2014-04-16 12:01:20 GMT
    Robert De Niro is a family man, a filmmaker, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite actors of all time. He's also a co-founder of the Tribeca Film Festival, which has more to see than ever before. De Niro wears just as many hats on screen as he does in real life. The father of six starred in six films last year, owns four restaurants and a hotel, and still finds time each spring for the Tribeca Film Festival, Lower Manhattan's annual cinematic showcase.
