Frank Vincent, seen here in 2007 with colleagues from The Sopranos, has died in New Jersey. He passed away at the age of 78 after suffering a heart attack last week.

After The Sopranos ended, Vincent continued to work in television, including voicing a character on Adult Swim's Mr. Pickles from 2014 to 2016. He died of complications from heart surgery in New Jersey, according to reports from The Blast and TMZ. The New Jersey native's first Scorsese film was 1980's Raging Bull, followed by Goodfellas in 1990, and Casino in 1995.

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.

He made his film debut in 1976 in " The Death Collector", whose cast also included his friend Joe Pesci, a fellow musician.

Frank was one of the most recognizable character actors - in the biz for 41 years - known for his tough guy roles. especially in mafia movies.
