A private viewing for actor James Gandolfini is to be held in a small town in New Jersey.

The invitation-only wake for family and friends of the late Sopranos star will be held at the Robert Spearing Funeral Home in Park Ridge on Wednesday.

Gandolfini, who grew up in nearby Westwood, died in Italy last week at the age of 51. Family spokesman Michael Kobold said the actor died of a heart attack.

Broadway theatres are also set to dim their marquee lights in memory of the actor, who earned a Tony Award nomination in 2009 for his role in the award-winning God Of Carnage.

Gandolfini's funeral will be held on Thursday at the Cathedral Church of Saint John the Divine in New York City.
