Rest in peace, Billy Batts...

Actor Frank Vincent, who infamously played Billy Batts in "Goodfellas" and Lupertazzi family boss Phil Leotardo in "The Sopranos" died today during open heart surgery at age 78.

Thanks for the movies and the memories, Mr. Vincent...

^ I always loved the fact that Joe killed Frank in "Goodfellas" and then Frank killed Joe in "Casino".

Gotta love Scorcese...

"They used to call him Spit Shine Tommy"

RIP

Vincent and Joe Pesci were pretty good friends before they acted together in Scorcese's movie, playing in a band and as a comedy team.

It was only fitting that Vincent got "revenge" on Pesci finally in Casino.

Damn, it seems we are losing too many great actors. I hate getting old.

Rest In Peace, Mr. Vincent.
