RIP Paul Sorvino

Above, Sorvino gives the definitive All-American Gangster line in the underrated but much loved, The Rocketeer:

“I may not make an honest buck – but I’m 100% American. And I don’t work for some two-bit Nazi.”

I know, I know, Goodfellas, but everyone will be clipping from that. You can run through his IMDB page and find your own favorite, but you will also see this: he was in more top-notch shows than many of his peers, and he always owned his performances.

Sorvino was 83. He will be missed.

    I remember how proud he was that Mira Sorvino won her oscar. He wasn’t afraid to send himself up, as in “See spot run”

    An excellent character actor and a dad who lived long enough to see Harvey Weinstein brought low by his scuzzy predatory shenanigans.
