Frank Vincent, Sopranos and Goodfellas actor, dies at 78

Source: Variety

Frank Vincent, known for portraying Phil Leotard on “The Sopranos,” has died, his “Sopranos” co-star Vincent Pastore announced on Facebook. He was 78.

TMZ reports that he died due to complications of heart surgery after a heart attack. John Gallagher, who directed Vincent in “Street Hunter,” “The Deli,” and “Animal Room,” also posted the news on Facebook.

Vincent began acting in 1976 when he co-starred in the low-budget crime film “The Death Collector” alongside Joe Pesci. Vincent then acted in Martin Scorsese’s “Raging Bull,” which sparked the first of many collaborations between Vincent, Pesci, and Robert De Niro, including “Goodfellas” and “Casino.”‘

Born in North Adams, Mass., and raised in Jersey City, N.J., Vincent often portrayed gangsters while also starring in two of Spike Lee’s films, “Do the Right Thing” and “Jungle Fever.”

5. Heard this on the radio early this morning.

He was such a recognizable actor and very compelling. What a loss...

R.I.P.

6. RIP *Sopranos Spoiler Alert*

My girlfriend is in Jersey at the moment and yesterday morning she drove by the gas station where he got whacked in the last episode. I told her where she was and then about two hours later the first news of his passing broke. Just one of those weird things. He had some incredible on screen deaths between "Goodfellas" and "The Sopranos".
Raging Bull
Walker Texas Ranger
NYPD Blue
Casino
Cosby
Do The Right Thing

Incredible body of work! RIP Frank!!
