Exclusive Photo: Remembering Frank Vincent of ‘The Sopranos’ & ‘Goodfellas,’ Dead at 80

16 September 2017 2:15 PM, PDT | HollywoodChicago.com | See recent HollywoodChicago.com news »

Chicago – Frank Vincent always looked good, no matter what role he was playing, but he mostly portrayed mafia types, and was styling as those guys as well… he even wrote a book on dress, “A Guy’s Guide to Being a Better Man.” He was best known as Phil Leotardo on the legendary HBO series, “The Sopranos,” and he passed away at age 80 in New Jersey on September 13th, 2017.

He was born in Jersey, and started his career as a musician, until he began acting in 1976, making his premiere in a low budget gangster film, “The Death Collector.” That appearance caught the attention of director Martin Scorsese, who cast Vincent in “Raging Bull.” That led to a TV and film career portraying mobsters and tough guys, but Vincent stood out because of his sartorial splendor. »

Frank Vincent obituary

14 September 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

Actor involved in grisly on-screen violence in The Sopranos and in Scorsese films including Goodfellas and Raging Bull

Martin Scorsese’s 1990 gangster drama Goodfellas opens with a bang. Three mobsters are driving at night when they hear a persistent thudding. They pull over and warily open the boot. Inside is Billy Batts, the man they thought they had killed, wrapped in blood-soaked tablecloths and pleading for his life. Armed with knife and gun, and bathed in an infernal red from the vehicle’s rear lights, the hoods finish what they started. The unfortunate Batts was played by Frank Vincent, who has died aged 80.

A flashback later in the picture, which shows what Batts did to warrant such an unhappy end, gave Vincent the catchphrase that followed him around for the rest of his days. “Go home and get your fucking shinebox!” he tells the volatile Tommy (Joe Pesci), a former shoeshine boy, »

Frank Vincent Remembered By Hollywood: “Consummate NYC Actor” & “Lovely Man”

13 September 2017 5:01 PM, PDT | Deadline TV | See recent Deadline TV news »

When it comes to memorable movie lines, everyone has their favorite.
