Solidly-built, open-faced American supporting actor with a shock of dark (soon iron grey) hair. A talented drummer, the performer, born Frank Vincent Gattuso, turned to acting in his mid thirties and often found himself cast as Italianate gangsters, most notably as the doomed Billy Batts in Scorsese's classic Goodfellas (1990). Inevitably, he was also cast in TV's The Sopranos.

He died from surgical complications following a heart attack.
