Actor James Gandolfini could be about to quit The Sopranos.
Gandolfini, who plays mobster Tony Soprano, has said that he's ready to move on.
"I'm ready to go," The Sun quoted him as saying.
The show has been running for five years and has won a huge following on both sides of the Atlantic.
News that Gandolfini, who reportedly earns 250,000 per episode, is ready to quit will be a blow to fans.
Despite the success of The Sopranos, Gandolfini has continued to pursue a film career, appearing in The Mexican, The Man Who Wasn't There and the forthcoming seasonal heart-warmer, Surviving Christmas.
