'Sopranos' Actor Frank Vincent Is Dead

Actor Frank Vincent, 80, has died.

Vincent's age isn't listed on his site, and other sources online have said 78. His family told the Associated Press he was 80.

His family reportedly said in a statement he died peacefully Sept. 13. The cause of death was not announced as of Thursday morning.

He recently suffered a heart attack, according to several reports.

Vincent was probably best-known for his role as mob boss Phil Leotardo on HBO's "The Sopranos."

But he portrayed several other tough-guy characters in films like "Goodfellas" and "Casino."

Vincent leaves behind a wife and three children.
