Tony Lip, who played 'Sopranos' mob boss, dies

Tony Lip, who played mob figures in the hit cable show "The Sopranos" and several critically acclaimed movies, died last week, according to a funeral home in Lodi, New Jersey.

Lip, whose real name was Frank Vallelonga, died on January 4, said an official with the Santangelo Funeral Home, which posted his obituary online. He was 82.

Lip was best known as the aging crime boss Carmine Lupertazzi in the hit HBO series "The Sopranos," where he appeared in 11 episodes. He played the leader of a New York crime family sometimes at odds with the series' main character, Tony Soprano. His character died in the hospital after having a stroke on a golf course.

He also was in the mob movies "The Godfather," "GoodFellas" and "Donnie Brasco."
