Frank Sivero

Frank Sivero is a face most movie buffs will recognize as the Frankie Carbone from Goodfellas. Rumor has it that director Martin Scorsese was impressed with his performance in the Godfather II to the extent that he cast him immediately for this crucial role in this pathbreaking script. Born on Januray 6th in 1952, Sivero was born an Italian but soon brought to Brooklyn, New York. He also went on to play the great role of Genco Abbandando in the historical Mario Puzo and also appeared in the movie Wedding singer with the classic Adam Sandler. Turns out the character of Louie was loosely based on Frankie’s personality from the Godfather, for which Sivero also sued Fox Television Studios . He alleged that the writers of the series lived next door and may have observed and based this character on him, though the judge dismissed the claim saying it was merely a parody of several mob characters. His original name was Francesco LoGuidice and he began his career with the film Ring of Death (2008). He also does a cameo in the Godfather wherein he appears in a scene in which Sunny Corleone is seen to be brutally beating his brother-in-law, Sonny. Godfather movie buffs also believe that the character Scorsese wrote for him in the sequel was based a lot on Sivero’s original personality. Like several of the many Italian-American actors from the mega classic series, he also went on to be portrayed time and again as a mob mafia. It seems like he was stereotyped. He also appeared later in his career in the movie Ring of Death: a film about a tough and terribly aggressive cop that is frowned upon for his hardened methods against criminals and the accused. He was also seen in The Wedding Singer with Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. which was more along the lines of a sweet rom-com. in which they meet each other at a wedding and hit it off really well, only for Adam to later discover that she is engaged to another man and he decides to sabotage the wedding and win her heart.
