Goodfellas star Paul Sorvino dead at 83: Paul Sorvino, a renowned character actor who was most well-known for his roles in the television series Law & Order and the film Goodfellas, passed away. He had 83 years under his belt. The actor, Mira Sorvino, passed away due to natural causes, as stated in a statement released by the actor’s wife.

Mira Sorvino, an actress who has won an Academy Award for her work in movies such as Mighty Aphrodite and Romy and Michele’s High School Reunion, is Sorvino’s daughter. In addition to his decades-long career on stage and screen, Sorvino is known as the father of Mira Sorvino. According to his profile on IMDb, Sorvino worked right up to the very end of his life, and he has three feature films that have already been shot but have not yet been released.

Over the course of his lengthy career, Sorvino has portrayed a diverse range of roles, appearing in everything from stage productions and serious dramas to comedic roles in films such as Repo! The Generic Opera and Hey Arnold! both starred in the film. It’s a Movie. In Warren Beatty’s film Reds (1981), Mira Sorvino portrayed one of the original members of the American Communist Party. This role was the beginning of a fruitful working relationship between the two actors, who later collaborated on the films Dick Tracy, Bulworth, and Rules Don’t Apply (2016).

Beatty and Martin Scorsese, directors of the film Goodfellas, are hardly the only prominent directors who have sought Mira Sorvino out. In addition to his numerous other roles, he is most known for his roles as the father of Juliet in Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo and Juliet and as Secretary of State Henry Kissinger in Oliver Stone’s Nixon.

In a statement, Sorvino’s wife, Dee Dee, said, “Our hearts are broken, there will never be another Paul Sorvino; he was the love of my life, and one of the greatest performers to ever grace the screen and stage.” “Our hearts are broken, there will never be another Paul Sorvino; he was one of the greatest performers to ever grace the screen and stage,” she added.

On the side of comic books, Sorvino portrayed Lips Manlis in Beatty’s Dick Tracy. Dick Tracy was directed by Sorvino (and, like almost everyone in that movie, was buried under such heavy makeup that he is hardly recognizable). In the hip and cool cult favorite The Rocketeer, he also portrayed the part of Eddie Valentine.

Despite the fact that Sorvino was only in one season of Law & Order, he left an impression by playing the tough-as-nails Detective Phil Cerretta, who was Chris Noth’s partner on the long-running series. During this time, Sorvino was a guest star on the show.

During this trying time, our thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Sorvino’s family, friends, fans, and colleagues in the entertainment industry.
