Jon Polito - RIP

Prolific character actor Jon Polito has died from cancer. He was 65 years old.

Polito was widely known for constantly playing tough guys on film and television, often as a detective or the head of the mafia. Fans of the Coen Brothers would often spot him in their films, starting off his streak of roles as Johnny Caspar, the Italian rival to Albert Finney's empire in Miller's Crossing. TV fans will recognize him for his role as Detective Crosetti in Homicide: Life On The Streets.

He will be missed.
