It's been a sad day, as we mourn the loss of James Gandolfini, a great actor who lit up our screens during his 27-year career. While many remember him most as HBO's Tony Soprano, one of television's most iconic figures, the 51-year old actor also gave us a plethora of versatile movie characters that, most of the time, stole the spotlight in each of their films.

To celebrate Gandolfini's prolific career, we're looking back on the roles that made us laugh, weep, and freeze in terror. While usually a tough guy, Gandolfini also showed us a softer side, stood on both sides of the law, and even portrayed a giant furry creature.

Check out the acting genius's most memorable moments on the big screen.
