Frank Vincent Dead at 78 From Heart Surgery Complications

On "The Sopranos", he played NY mob boss Phil Leotardo who was the nemesis to Tony Soprano.

Vincent starred in a string of Martin Scorses films during his 41-year acting career.

Frank Vincent, who memorably played mob boss Phil Leotardo on "The Sopranos", died from heart surgery complications Wednesday.

Five years later, Vincent's Frankie exacted revenge on Pesci's Nicky Santoro in Casino in another memorable murder scene.

According to TMZ, Vincent was having open-heart surgery in a New Jersey hospital when he died. He was most recognized for the tough guy roles in mafia movies.

Among his many credits, Vincent appeared in Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing and Jungle Fever and played a detective in the 2008 indie The Tested.

Following the death of Sopranos co-star and dear friend James Gandolfini in 2013, the New Jersey-raised Vincent said, "He was a sweetheart of a man and it's very tragic that this happened".
