Vincent died of complications from heart surgery in New Jersey

Vincent also played tough guys for director Martin Scorsese in Raging Bull (1980), Goodfellas (1990) — as the real-life Gambino gangster Billy Batts — and Casino (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.

His film résumé also included The Pope of Greenwich Village (1984), Wise Guys (1986), Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing (1989), Night Falls on Manhattan (1996) and Shark Tale (2004).

I met Frank Vincent years ago when I was the Shift manager at the Golden Nugget and he was with his wife and another couple and they were shooting dice and I look at him and said "Hey Billy Batts last time I seen you you were in the trunk of a car" He laugh and we all had a good time.

RIP Frank Vincent the one time we met you were a gentleman.
