VINNY VELLA DIES AT 72: Vinny Vella, best known for his roles in Casino and The Sopranos, has died at age 72 from liver cancer. His son Vinny Vella Jr. released a statement confirming the sad news: “We are saddened to report that Vinny Vella has passed and I'm sure that no one more saddened than himself. Vinny loved life from his family to his friends and fans he was easily one of the funniest, endearing actors to have ever graced the screen. Vinny also had integrity and pride rarely seen. Arguably the fastest on the draw, king of the comebacks. His verbal jousting was legendary but many know Vinny for his favorite saying – 'Who's better than you?' Well Vinny, I think we all can agree on the answer to that, it was you, it always was you! We miss you my boy!”
