The cast and crew of "Enough Said" honored the film's late star James Gandolfini its premiere in New York on Monday.

Gandolfini died in Rome, Italy at age 52 on June 19th this year, just months ahead of the release date of his latest film project.

Nevertheless, Gandolfini's co-stars in the romantic comedy as well as those from "The Sopranos" came out in droves to remember the actor at the movie premiere, according to USA Today.

Actress Julia Louis-Dreyfus shared her grief over the loss of her "Enough Said" co-star during the premiere, as did Toni Collette, Catherine Keener, director Nicole Holofcener and "Sopranos" actor Tony Siricio.

"This is how great an actor Jim was… He was no Tony Soprano, this guy was sweet thoughtful, generous, self-effacing, like the guy in this film" she said on the red carpet.

Moreover, Holofcener noted that the previous "Enough Said" premiere was "bittersweet" without Gandolfini.

"I really wish he would have seen the finished film, because hopefully he would have seen how lovely he is in it," said the director, according to the Huffington Post.

Meanwhile, Gandolfini is set to receive a special tribute during this year's Emmy Awards as well.

Sunday's awards ceremony will also honor the memory of Cory Monteith. The "Glee" star died of a heroin and alcohol overdose in Vancouver, Canada at age 31 in July.

Other tributes at the Emmys will see Rob Reiner honoring the "All in the Family" star Jean Stapleton, Robin Williams remembering Jonathan Winters, and Michael J. Fox honoring "Family Ties" producer Gary David Goldberg.

Neil Patrick Harris will host the 65th Primetime Emmys Awards, and the show airs on CBS this Sunday, Sept. 22.
