12 Angry Men, 1997 —
This remake of the 1957 film found some of Hollywood's best and brightest determining the fate of a criminal in this TV movie of the month. Gandolfini, in contrast to characters he's played before, was Juror #6. A house painter by trade, he played a patient and respectful man who listened intently of what other people had to say. He never riled up tempers like cohorts Tony Danza and Mykelti Williamson, but wasn't a pushover.
Watch as the gang deliberate the fate of a young boy's life in this trailer:
