Paul Sorvino, ‘Goodfellas’ Actor, Dies at 83

Sorvino, father of actress Mira Sorvino, is perhaps best known for the role of Sgt. Frank Ceretta in NBC’s “Law & Order” as Mafia Don Bill Cicero in Martin Scorsese’s beloved gangster “Goodfellas” and Kissinger in Oliver Stone’s “Nixon.”

Mira Sorvino tweeted, “My great father Paul Sorvino has passed away. My heart is torn – a life of love, joy and wisdom ended with him. He was the most wonderful father. I love him so much. I am sending you love in the stars dad as you ascend.”

Sorvino has acted consistently, with more than 170 credits and dozens of roles in recent years including guest appearances in “The Godfather of Harlem,” “Bad Blood,” “Secret Grandfather,” “Goldberg,” and “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders.”

He was one of the cast of multiple villains, Lips Manelis, assembled into the crime drama Dick Tracy, starring and directed by Warren Beatty.

Petty has starred in Sorvino in four of his five films as a director – in the communist history film Reds, in the 1998 political satire Bullworth, in which he played the boss of a large insurance company who wants a political favor from the senator portrayed by Petty, and again in the “Rules”. Do not apply” ominous.

In Stone’s movie “Nixon”, Sorvino played Secretary of State and Nixon’s confidant Henry Kissinger. The following year he played Fulgencio Capulet, the patriarch of the Capulets, on Baz Luhrmann’s Miami group spin-off “Romeo & Juliet”.

He also played a gang leader who ruthlessly seeks a futuristic jet pack at the center of the story in the 1991 movie The Rocketeer.

In 1982, Sorvino returned to the role of Phil Romano in “This Season of Championships”—in which he appeared on Broadway in 1974—when playwright Jason Miller adapted his Pulitzer Prize-winning play for the big screen.

The movie also starred Robert Mitchum as a former basketball coach and Bruce Dern, Stacey Kitsch and Martin Sheen as other members of the team who come together for a reunion that will actually see a lot of disharmony.

Sorvino directed the 1999 film adaptation, starring Vincent Donofrio.

The actor had a rare opportunity to star in a romantic lead in John Aveldsen’s 1978 film “Slow Dancing in the Big City” right after he directed “Rocky,” but the story of a newspaper columnist has quite a bit of weight (but someone famous throughout the world). across New York) has been paired with a dying dancer played by Anne Ditchburn, and she’s drowned out by a sentimental script.

Mostly, Sorvino gave featured backing to his many films, as in William Friedkin’s 1979 film “The Brink’s Job” and in “A Touch of Class” opposite Glenda Jackson and George Segal.

Roger Ebert said in the 1976 film “I’ll…I’ll…Now,” starring Elliot Gould and Diane Keaton, Sorvino, who plays a lawyer in this sex farce, was “the only good thing about it.”

In 2008 “Repo! The Genetic Musical”, heavily defamed, Sorvino was stuck playing a gang leader again – someone who traded human organs – but the role afforded him the opportunity to sing tunes on the big screen.

The actor has worked at least as much on television as he did on the big screen.
Sorvino spent some time as part of the “Law & Order” franchise; After George Dzonza left, he played the role of sergeant.
