LAS VEGAS (AP) — “Goodfellas’, ‘Raging Bull’ and ‘Casino’ actor Frank Adonis has died at 83.
His wife, Denise, told TMZ and Fox News that he died Wednesday in Las Vegas after several years of illness, mostly from kidney problems. She said he’d been on dialysis and was on a ventilator for nine days but they waited until after Christmas to take him off it.
