‘The Godfather’ 42 Years Later

Abe Vigoda

His Character: Salvatore Tessio

After getting his start as a low-level thug alongside a young Vito Corleone and Peter Clemenza, Tessio becomes one of Don Vito’s main capos. He is unhappy with new Don Michael Corleone, however, and ultimately arranges for Michael’s assassination under the rouse of a pace summit. He is found out, however, and is dealt with accordingly.

Life Beyond ‘The Godfather’:

The 93-year-old actor’s career has included films as diverse as “The Godfather” and “Good Burger,” but he really made his name on TV as Detective Sgt. Phil Fish on both “Barney Miller” and its subsequent spinoff, “Fish.” He’s done little work in recent years (his last movie credit is for a 2008 project titled “The Unknown Trilogy”), but he did step into the public eye in 2010 for a Super Bowl commercial co-starring Betty White.-XFINITY Entertainment Staff
