    Could be classified as one of Hollywood's classic "That Guys," but is of course most known for his role as Moe Green in "The Godfather."

    Also notable as Jo's dad in "The Facts of Life," and small roles in "Get Shorty" and "That Thing You Do" among many, many other credits.

    And of course, it looks like he died peacefully and with dignity, and not because of a bullet through his eye.

    Played alongside Michael Corleone and Tootie ... that pretty much spans a Hollywood career.

  5. Voice work on The Simpsons as head of Itchy and Scratchy studios.

    Hope he died doing what he loved ... Banging Cocktail Waitress, two at a time!

    Read he would leave voicemails for people as Moe Green. Said he'd been doing it for 40 years.
