Frank Vincent, who played the vicious mob boss Phil Leotardo on The Sopranos, has died. He was 78.

Vincent died of complications from heart surgery in New Jersey, TMZ reported.

Vincent also played tough guys for director Martin Scorsese in Raging Bull (1980), Goodfellas (1990) — as the real-life Gambino gangster Billy Batts — and Casino (1995).

On HBO's The Sopranos, Leotardo often butted heads with James Gandolfini's Tony Soprano as he eventually rose to become boss of the Lupertazzi crime family.

His film résumé also included The Pope of Greenwich Village (1984), Wise Guys (1986), Spike Lee's Do the Right Thing (1989), Night Falls on Manhattan (1996) and Shark Tale (2004).
