James Gandolfini Meets With the Real Mayor

Actor James Gandolfini, who plays a New York City mayor in the movie, The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3, walked into City Hall a while ago and into the mayor’s side of the building.

Bloomberg was slated to have a role in the movie version of Sex and the City last year, but he wound up on the cutting-room floor.
