Paul Sorvino, an imposing actor whose roles ranged from the mob boss in "Goodfellas" to an early stint on the long-running cop drama "Law & Order," has died, according to his publicist Roger Neal. He was 83.
Born in Brooklyn, New York, Sorvino earned a Tony nomination for his role in "That Championship Season" (reprising the role in the film version) and appeared in a long list of movies that included portraying Henry Kissinger in "Nixon," "Dick Tracy," "Reds," and "The Rocketeer."
Sorvino is perhaps best remembered for director Martin Scorsese's "Goodfellas" as Paul Cicero, the mobster who even in prison retained a passion for cooking and fine cuisine, thinly slicing garlic with a razor blade. (Sorvino and his wife later co-wrote the book "Pinot, Pasta, and Parties.")
The actor took a role in "Law & Order" as one of the detectives but soon left, citing the limited range of the material. He is survived by his wife and 3 children including his daughter Mira Sorvino, who won an Academy Award and dedicated to her parents.

I never saw Grease until I opened my first Hollywood Video store. My regional VP was there and so was my DM and he told me to go grab Grease and play it. I looked at him and said, that's not company policy. He said for every store he opened, that was always the first movie he had played. I told him I hadn't watched it ever. Was told to take it home that night and watch it. A really good movie and some great songs. Much respect to a wonderful singer and actress.
