    Not sure I knew him.

    Hell of an actor. Long Good Friday is one of the best gangster films out there. The last scene is amazing.

    Great actor. He and his talent will be missed.
    Everything in your life is a reflection of a choice you have made. If you want a different result, don't blame someone else, or expect others to make a change, you should stop complaining and make a different choice. Remember, the circumstances of your birth don't determine the outcome of your life.

    Is it wrong that I remember him most as "Mario" in Super Mario Bros?

    I didn't recognize the name, but I did the face when I checked the article - a fine character actor, the type who makes a film memorable because of their portrayals in bit parts.

    RIP.
