Actor. He was best known to film viewers as both mobster 'Carmine Rosato' in the 1974 film "The Godfather: Part II" and mob boss 'Albert Volpe' in its 1990 sequel, "The Godfather: Part III." He took up acting at a young age, at the local Boys Club in Manhattan, New York. He later served in the United States Army for three years during the Korean War. After his military service, he served some time in a federal penitentiary for trying to sell cocaine to an undercover agent. In 1962, he made his acting debut on the television series "Naked City."
