Veteran Actor Frank Vincent Dead At 78

Veteran Actor Frank Vincent Dead At 78

Vincent died peacefully on Wednesday, a statement from his family said.

According to TMZ, Vincent died during heart surgery after experiencing complications. "He was a seamless fit in many mobster movies and TV shows, such as "Goodfellas" and "#The Sopranos", over the past several decades. Though initial reports stated that Vincent was 78 years old, his family told the Associated Press that he was 80.

"He had a job to do and he thought, you know, 'This Soprano guy is from Jersey, what does that mean?"

Pakistan aiming to seal T20I series against World XI
He said Pakistan is "safe for global cricket". 'As a cricketer, knowing that you can not play cricket hurts badly, ' Irfan said. The three-match series in now tied at 1-1 after Pakistan won the first match and World XI beat the hosts in the second.

Born in MA but raised in New Jersey, Vincent originally wanted to have a career in music but switched to acting when he got a role in a low-budget mob movie called The Death Collector alongside another up-and-coming actor named Joe Pesci.

"Our family will never forget the Leotardo legacy", HBO, which was home to "The Sopranos" for its six seasons, tweeted.

Vincent's talents weren't limited to just acting.

Unemployment dips only slightly in MA , but that's a first for 2017
US employers added 156,000 jobs overall last month, and the unemployment rate ticked up to 4.4 percent, still near a 16-year low. Indiana's total labor force is almost 3.34 million and the state had a 64.4 percent labor force participation rate.

He was also featured on HBO's The Sopranos as the arch-nemesis to John Gandolfini's Tony Soprano. Leotardo would end up playing a key role in the series.

Hollywood colleagues and fans paid tribute to Vincent on social media with references to some of his memorable movie scenes.

His film résumé also included The Pope of Greenwich Village (1984), Brian De Palma's Wise Guys (1986), Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing (1989) and Jungle Fever (1991), Sidney Lumet's Night Falls on Manhattan (1996), James Mangold's Cop Land (1997), Shark Tale (2004) and Chicago Overcoat (2009).

Amla, Perera lead World XI to T20 win
Badree took 2 for 31, while Perera had 2 for 23 to restrict Pakistan to 174 in 20 overs. Pakistan reached the 50-run mark in 7.2 overs and crossed the 100 mark in 12.2 overs.

Of the three films Vincent made with Scorsese, it's Goodfellas that provided the veteran star with his juiciest role. But it was the profane zingers he uttered as Billy "Go get your shinebox" Batts, and the gruesome onscreen deaths that Batts and Phil Leotardo both suffered, for which Vincent was best known.
