Steve Carell has talked about his sadness at James Gandolfini's death, and revealed they were due to star together in a film next year.

Award-winning TV and film actor James, best known for his role as a mob boss in The Sopranos, was found dead in Italy after suffering a cardiac arrest.

Despicable Me 2 actor Steve said he was shocked by the news and told The Sun about a project they were due to work on in 2014, Bone Wars.

He said: "It's a huge loss. My thoughts go to his family. He was a great guy, really sweet, generous, kind and obviously a great actor. We were supposed to do something next year. It's a big shock."

James died on a family trip to Rome from a suspected heart attack at the age of 51.

The pair had appeared alongside each other earlier this year in The Incredible Burt Wonderstone.

Despicable Me 2, where Steve voices the world's number two villain Gru, is released in cinemas on June 28.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Gemini:

Someone will break a promise to you, which is disappointing. Don't let this setback stop you from crossing the finish line. You may have to submit an entry late or attend the last few minutes of a meeting, but take heart. Rallying in the midst of difficult circumstances will count in your favour. Someone else may get a job or scholarship, but you'll be in the running for the next opportunity. In the meantime, have an alternative plan ready when relying on others for help.More
