Personal Quote:

[on his good friend and My Cousin Vinny (1992) co-star, the late Fred Gwynne] It takes somebody who's very serious to pull off a character like Herman Munster [from Gwynne's series The Munsters (1964)]. It's not simple to play the goof. Fred was not Herman. He was an intelligent, quiet gentleman.

Trivia:

Reprised his character from My Cousin Vinny (1992) for his 1998 album "Vincent LaGuardia Gambini Sings Just for You". The single "Yo Cousin Vinny" was a hit in some European countries. See more »

Trademark:

Often plays a criminal (ex. Goodfellas (1990), and Home Alone (1990) and Casino (1995)). See more »
