Aw man, that's hella shocking. R.I.P.

Holy shit what a bummer.

Always be remembered for the incredibly brief, yet superbly accurate depiction of London.

I recognise the face but can't remember where from.

Still, R.I.P.

You remember Crime Story? That was a good show.

He was awesome in Get Shorty.

He played the role of the 'flexible' mobster with a sense of humor very well, I enjoyed the couple of roles I've seen him play (in Get Shorty and Snatch, mostly).

RIP!

He was awesome in everything. And he's in my personal favorite movie, Midnight Run.

Aww, I'll have to watch Goodfellas, Get Shorty, and Snatch in his honor. Now get your fucking shinebox.

That was Frank Vincent ( Phil Leotardo ). Funny enough I know this, because I lost a bet about it like two weeks ago

@radekv123: Oh interesting, still going to watch Goodfellas though.

As you should. Now get your fucking shinebox.

Man, I just recently watched Snatch too. This sucks.

I liked him as a nice addition to Law and Order after Orbach (Lenny) died. It got kinda ridiculous between him and Jesse Martin watching them change suits multiple times during their day of detective work. It was like they were trying to outdue the other with the sharpest 3 piece suit and trenchcoat.

Great actor. Will be truly missed.

He was a real life police officer and worked with my uncle in Area 3 Homicide in Chicago. That was a few years before I was born though. Still, my uncle talked highly of him.

One of those guys you don't know the name or his roles, but just recognize his face, he was a good actor most likely. RIP

Great actor! Rest in peace man!

#22 Posted by Svenzon (726 posts) -

Really great character actor. The man sure had charisma. Rest in peace!

When I read the name I was like "who the hell is that" saw the image and was bummed.
Charismatic actor, for sure.

Yup. Kinda eerie that now both him and Gandolfini have passed away, both supporting characters of Get Shorty. And yet Gene Hackman at 83 keeps on truckin' :P

At this point I wouldn't be surprised if Gene Hackman just punches his chest when his heart is acting up and goes "If you stop now, I will revive myself and make your life hell on earth".
I like my version Gene Hackman the best.
