Gandolfini takes spill


NEW YORK (AP) – “Sopranos” actor James Gandolfini took a tumble after his motor scooter collided with a taxi, but was said to be unhurt.

“James Gandolfini is fine, and his scooter is in the repair shop,” HBO spokeswoman Angela Tarantino said Thursday.

Gandolfini, who plays mob boss Tony Soprano on the hit HBO series, was motoring along a street in lower Manhattan Wednesday when the accident happened.

Gandolfini left the scene in another taxi and arranged for his crippled Italian scooter to be picked up to be fixed.
