THE SOPRANOS star JAMES GANDOLFINI was nicknamed JESUS after working in a New York City mortuary to research for a movie role - because no one died.
The actor volunteered working night shifts in the city morgue, handling corpses as they arrived from crime scenes and hospitals.
But Gandolfini was left with nothing to do, because his stint coincided with a drought of deaths.
He explains, "They started to call me Jesus Christ because no one would die in New York City."
