Director: Gandolfini was 'gentle, tender'

Broadway director Matthew Warchus worked with James Gandolfini on the show "God of Carnage." Warchus talked with CNN's John King about how Gandolfini handled the strenuous environment at the theater and what he appreciated most about the actor who died in Italy at age 51.

"He was extremely gentle, tender, soft-hearted, vulnerable, kind," said Warchus. "He was a big personality but he was a humble, and a....man with high standards and great, great talent."

Investigator: Lies told about plane crash

Former Senior National Transportation Safety Board Investigator Hank Hughes says physical evidence shows an outside explosion brought down TWA flight 800 in 1996, and it was not an accident.

All 230 passengers aboard the plane heading to Paris died when it exploded and fell apart soon after taking off from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York. The NTSB ruled that the incident was caused by an electrical short circuit, but now former investigators are requesting the investigation be reopened.
