A sign of his character...I can't recall all the details but there was some open-air event that Glen Beck went to with his young son. He and James Gandolfini apparently saw each other and Gandolfini made some disparaging comment to Beck in front of his child (like calling him the anti-Christ or something like that). Glen didn't respond; after a while, James came up to him and apologized, said he was wrong. It takes a big man to apologize.
I'm glad Beck didn't respond, that was probably what got James to thinking how wrong he was. I'm glad he was man enough to admit it and apologize. Speaks to both their characters.
They were saying yesterday that his Will is a mess and that the government might get $30 million of his $70 million estate. It's so wrong the way we're taxed, even after death!
