Legendary character actor Frank Vincent has died at 78, according to TMZ.

Known best for playing the villain in some of Martin Scorsese's most memorable movies, including "Raging Bull," "Goodfellas," and Casino," Vincent also played mob boss Phil Leotardo on "The Sopranos."

Vincent died of complications from heart surgery.

With 89 credits over his 41-year career, Vincent's other highlights include starring in Spike Lee movies like "Do The Right Thing" and "Jungle Fever." He was also a fixture in the gaming world as he lent his voice to numerous "Grand Theft Auto" games.

But he'll be remembered most for his work with Scorsese, which often had him either at odds with fellow Scorsese regular Joe Pesci or friends with him.

Here's a classic NSFW scene between the duo from "Goodfellas":
