James Gandolfini shows funny side in one of his last films, 'Enough Said'

Aug. 7, 2013 at 9:05 AM ET

When James Gandolfini died suddenly on June 19, he left behind several film and TV projects that are only now starting to roll out. And with the trailer for the relationship comedy "Enough Said," fans can once again enjoy the actor on camera, flexing muscles that have nothing to do with being a tough guy.

In fact, in the trailer, Gandolfini — who stars opposite "Veep's" Julia Louis-Dreyfus — gets a turn at comedy (he's already displayed his funny talents in films like "The Incredible Burt Wonderstone" and "In the Loop"). He's a guy who meets Louis-Dreyfus at a party, and their romance develops into a relationship — which hits a snag when it turns out he's the ex of one of her new, close friends (played by Catherine Keener). 

Director Nicole Holofcener has a light touch with independent comedies that don't rely on slapstick or bodily fluids to get across a joke (2006's "Friends with Money," 2010's "Please Give") and "Enough Said" seems to feature Gandolfini in a warm, not-quite-cuddly, honest role. He's also a terrific match for Louis-Dreyfus.
