'Sopranos' & 'Goodfellas' Star Frank Vincent Dead at 80

September 14, 2017

Actor Frank Vincent died on Wednesday, September 13 after complications from heart surgery, TMZ reports.

Vincent made his film debut in 1976’s The Death Collector alongside Joe Pesci, but he’s perhaps best known for other roles, like Billy Batts, the Goodfellas character who met his demise after the infamous “shine box” insult thrown at Pesci’s character. He also made a name for himself in his roles as Frank Marino in Casino and crime boss Phil Leotardo on The Sopranos, among others.
