Actor Paul Sorvino dies at 83

A fine singer and actor, he was much loved and respected throughout the industry.

He was best known as a heavy in such films as Goodfellas and Nixon, but did you know that he once played a romantic lead in a syrupy tear-jerker? (Corny film, but as always, he did a damned good job as the awkward tough-guy reporter who has no idea how to court the beautiful ballerina he adores.)
