Gandolfini's Iraq offer
09:30 26 May 2006
James Gandolfini has offered to fight in the Iraq war.
The star made the startling revelation during the Washington premiere of war documentary 'Baghdad ER'.
He said: "I'd go, I'm too old and fat, but I'd drive a truck.
"The American people haven't had to sacrifice anything."
The Hollywood actor, best known for his role as a mafia boss in 'The Sopranos', also urged President George W Bush to "reinstate the draft, send 500,000 troops and finish it".
HBO special 'Baghdad ER' follows the events in the emergency room of a Combat Hospital in Baghdad's Green Zone during a two month period last year.
The controversial premiere was attended by 36 US servicemen on Monday (22.05.06).
More screenings are planned at 22 Army posts across America.
