Oscar’S Year Of Visual Effects, and The Art Of Seeing And Believing

6 hours ago | Trailers from Hell | See recent Trailers from Hell news »

If you have been living and routinely interacting with other human beings over the last month, you’ve probably heard one or two words involving this year’s Academy Awards and the heated controversy over the startling lack of both films and people of color among the nominees. Personally, I think that the real focus of concern ought to be less on the back end-- awards handed out for films which were financed and/or studio-approved, scheduled for production and filmed perhaps as much as two or three years ago-- and more on addressing the lack of cultural and intellectual and experiential diversity among those who have the power to make the decisions as to what films get made in the first place. This is no sure-fire way to ensure that there will be a richer and more consistent representation of diverse creative voices when it comes time for Hollywood »

Barney Miller: Abe Vigoda Dies at 94, Farewell Det Fish

26 January 2016 7:19 PM, PST | TVSeriesFinale.com | See recent TVSeriesFinale news »

Best known as Detective Phil Fish from the Barney Miller TV series and its spin-off, Fish, Abe Vigoda passed away today, January 26, at the age of 94. This character actor appeared on the now-cancelled soap operas Dark Shadows, As the World Turns, and Santa Barbara. He also recurred in three episodes of the 2000 comedy series, Manhattan Az, which was cancelled by USA Network, before his episodes aired.

Although coming to TV and film later in his career, Mr. Vigoda had a list of credits a mile long. Arguably, his two biggest roles were in The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II films, as mafioso Sal Tessio, of Don Corleone's organization. Vigoda would later voice the character for a number of Godfather-themed video games.

Abe Vigoda, ‘Barney Miller’ and ‘Godfather’ Actor, Dies at 94

26 January 2016 11:19 AM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Actor Abe Vigoda, best known for his roles as mobster Tessio in “The Godfather” and as Detective Sgt. Fish in TV’s “Barney Miller” and a spinoff series in which he starred, has died. He was 94 and died in New Jersey of natural causes, his daughter, Carol Vigoda Fuchs told the Associated Press.

The tall character actor with the characteristically slouched shoulders and hangdog face became something of a pop culture figure due to repeated false reports of his demise, which became the subject of jokes. Reflecting his somewhat odd celebrity was the existence of a punk rock band named Abe Vigoda; his recurring appearances in the late 2000s on “Late Night With Conan O’Brien”; and the existence of a website named Isabevigodadead.com, which for years consisted simply of a blank page with the word No.
