A somber Joseph R. Gannascoli, who played Vito Spatafore alongside James Gandolfini on HBO's "The Sopranos," talked with John Gambling Thursday morning about Gandolfini's sudden passing.

Gandolfini, 51, died of a heart attack while vacationing in Italy. Gannascoli was obviously very upset and broken up over the news of Gandolfini's passing as he talked with Gambling about his time working with the legendary “Sopranos” actor. Gannascoli described Gandolfini as a "humble, regular guy that was really truly gifted."
