SOPRANOS creator David Chase delivered a powerful eulogy for actor JAMES GANDOLFINI, as the actor who brought TONY SOPRANO to life... was laid to rest in New York City.
In the remarks, Chase painted the picture of a scene from the end of an episode which never made it out of the idea phase, which featured an 'on his own' mob boss, without keys, without a wallet, and alone, waiting for a bus to get home. The scene was set to a Joan Osborne song, WHAT IF GOD WAS ONE OF US.
