One of those actors whom nobody can identify by name but everybody knows, Vincent Schiavelli met his fate in Scicily yesterday (no, they didn't, the cigarette industry did). Like Charles Durning and John McGiver before him, Vincent Schiavelli was one of those guys who was in virtually every movie of a certain era. From "Ghost" ("I was pushed in front of that subway!") through "Buckaroo Bonzai" ("Nice night.") through "Ridgemont High" ("I just switched to Sanka and I'm having a bad day, so have a heart.") and beyond, not to mention TV roles like "Taxi" ("Lahht-kahhh . . ."), he was one of the essential faces of 80s and 90s pop culture.
