Martin Scorsese pens emotional tribute to Frank Vincent

Frank Vincent sopranos goodfellas

Born into a family of Italian-Americans in North Adams, Mass., Frank Vincent Gattuso Jr.was raised in the Greenville section of Jersey City, New Jersey.

The Sopranos star Frank Vincent has been cremated and will be displayed at his upcoming memorial service. Whether it was Salvy Batts spending too much time with Joey LaMotta's sister-in-law in "Raging Bull" or Billy Batts pestering Tommy DeVito in "GoodFellas" about his history as a shoeshine boy, Vincent always had a knack for playing the man who would set off Pesci's characters, and the two actors had some phenomenal scenes together.

As an adult, he became a session drummer for such singers as Paul Anka, Del Shannon, Trini Lopez and The Belmonts. He was most recognized for the tough guy roles in mafia movies.

Vincent's other major film roles included Brian De Palma's Wise Guys (1986), Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing (1989) and Jungle Fever (1991), and Sidney Lumet's Night Falls on Manhattan (1996). Mugs and T-shirts emblazoned with the line were soon being sold. He would play his typical mobster role in Scorsese films and was perhaps most memorable when getting under the skin of hotheaded Joe Pesci characters. He originally auditioned for the pilot of the series, created by David Chase, which began its long run on HBO in 1999.

"All I can say is we had a lot of fun".

On HBO's The Sopranos, Leotardo often butted heads with James Gandolfini's Tony Soprano as he eventually rose to become boss of the Lupertazzi crime family.

In the book, he wrote of being approached at a mall by three women who gushed over his Sopranos character. "They went on to tell me that it had absolutely nothing to do with the fact that Phil Leotardo kills people on the show. For the record, there's a good bit of myself in Phil Leotardo".
