Vincent suffered a heart attack last week and had to undergo open heart surgery.

- Frank Vincent, known for his roles on "The Sopranos" and Goodfellas, died Wednesday at a New Jersey hospital, according to TMZ.

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. He was spotted, along with Joe Pesci, by Robert De Niro, who recommended them to director Martin Scorsese.

Vincent also worked on the films "The Pope of Greenwich Village", "Wise Guys", Spike Lee's "Do the Right Thing", "Night Falls on Manhattan", and "Shark Tale". He had a cameo role in 2009's Stargate Atlantis.

The news was shared by his co-star Vincent Pastore, who sent an email to friends with the sad announcement.
