PostSubject: Sopranos, Goodfellas actor Frank Vincent dies at 80   Thu Sep 14, 2017 1:59 am

Famed film and television tough guy Frank Vincent, who battled James Gandolfini and Robert De Niro in his most prominent roles, has died at 80.

“Legendary actor and accomplished musician Frank Vincent has passed away peacefully at the age of 80 surrounded by his family on September 13, 2017. We ask that you respect our privacy during this difficult time,” his family said in a statement.

The New Jersey native, who began his career in entertainment as a musician, began acting in the 1970s, a decade that also saw him form a short-lived comedy duo with fellow musician Joe Pesci. “I would abuse the audience,” Vincent said in a 1996 interview with the New York Times, “and Joe would abuse me.”

After getting his big acting break alongside Pesci in 1976’s The Death Collector, Vincent appeared as an antagonist for Pesci in Martin Scorsese’s 1980 classic Raging Bull. A fruitful collaboration with Scorsese, Pesci, and Robert De Niro would soon follow. Vincent memorably played mobster Billy Batts in Scorsese’s 1990 classic Goodfellas, uttering the immortal line, “go get your f—ing shine box,” among other profane zingers. (Vincent’s graphic death scene, at the hands of Pesci’s character, both starts Goodfellas and acts as a narrative turning point later in the story.)
