You may not know the name Frank Sivero but, if you’ve seen a mob movie, you know his face. He played Frankie Carbone in Martin Scorsese’s Goodfellas, the afro-sporting mobster who buys his wife a mink coat and ends up on a meat hook. He’s also an extra in The Godfather and had a bigger role in The Godfather Part II. In recent years, fantasy became reality as he was arrested for gun possession.
Now, the actor is attempting a new way to make money. A massive, massive lawsuit against The Simpsons.
