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.

    It's a running joke that if you mention the Eugene O'Neill Theater Center to nearly anyone in Hollywood they're going to know exactly what you're talking about because odds are they might have gotten their first big break there. Would you believe some Hollywood's biggest stars -- Meryl Streep, Michael Douglas, Angela Bassett -- got their start in a big red barn in the middle of nowhere.
