Perhaps this thread should be moved to the Movies section. Just seems incongruous to have this great actor lumped in with Peter Andre and Katie Price.

Plus you won't have people making inane comments like "Eh? Who's he? Was he in Eastenders?"

Loved him in Law and Order too - he brought a great realism to a part that could have been really fake.


All those we expect to die are rallying, which is great, but we keep getting these unexpected deaths.



RIP he will be much missed.

It probably helped that he served 18 years in the Chicago Police Department before becoming an actor

He put many fine performances in over the years in films and on TV and I'm sorry to hear of his passing.

It was no age at all, he only celebrated his seventeenth birthday on February 29th of this year

You may be confusing him with Frank Vincent who played Phil Leotardo in the Sopranos, they do look very similar.
