James Gandolfini was approached about appearing in The Human Centipede 3

05.19.2015

I'm currently in the midst of re-watching The Sopranos and discovering all over again just what a great talent James Gandolfini was. The actor sadly passed away in 2013 but still had several films in the can including ENOUGH SAID and THE DROP, but according to THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 3 (FINAL SEQUENCE) director Tom Six, it's possible that the sequel to the body-horror franchise may have been among them.

Tom Six mentioned in an interview with Entertainment Weekly that he had approached James Gandolfini for the role of the governor:

I had James Gandolfini in mind and Eric Roberts. I was talking to them both. But when James Gandolfini read the script he was a little bit hesitant. Yeah, he backed off, and then he died, of course.

The role ended up going to Eric Roberts (did you see that he'll be appearing in over 50 films this year?) and while I very much doubt that Gandolfini would have taken the role, it's still an interesting bit of "what-if" casting. I definitely miss the man, but thankfully he left behind an impressive body of work for us to enjoy.

THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 3 (FINAL SEQUENCE) opens in theaters and VOD on May 22, 2015.

I find this article to be in very poor taste, come on JoBlo you are better than posting this kinda garbage. I am not even the sensitive type either, but what was the point of posting this in the first place?

Some of you all are rude... this is news because this is a movie site and it is an article about a casting that could have been. I dont think he would have wver taken thw role, but it is interesting to know he was approached about it

???

So what? Why do we need to know this now? The guy died 2 years ago, move on, talking about what he could've done is pointless.

I'm pretty sure Tom Six would say whatever he wants just to get attention.

There is no way he would have signed onto this material. He was much, MUCH better than this type of trash and would have been a waste of his talent.

I do miss the big guy's presence. He was terrific in The Drop.

Wha?

Is this even news? How many actors are "approached" to be in movies and turn them down? I'm sure very many are, why is this even a story?
