Why couldn't God have taken Frank Bough instead of Frank Vincent?

"You're hot as a pistol, man, hot as a pistol..."



Pour out a little Lambrusco for arguably the greatest character actor of our lifetime, and the man with the best rug in any movie or TV show he ever graced with his presence. His ultimate legacy will, of course, be the shinebox - just look up any clip or interview with him on YouTube and the comments will be 80% shinebox jokes.

Always wished Scorsese had given Frank more of a role in Taxi Driver or a role as one of the mobsters in After Hours. Also always wished he'd have appeared in more rap videos after Hype Williams drafted him in for Nas' Street Dreams. Imagine how the video for Kool G. Rap's It's A Shame could have been improved with Frank's mug up in it as the mafia plug.

Damn, amico. Who'd have ever thunk Dominic Chianese would outlive James Gandolfini and Frank Vincent? Protect Uncle Junior at all costs.

RIP Phillie Leot(n)ardo, goat character after Tony n Janis imo, def the most petty.

also 2nd best Junior moment after giving his goomar a cagney right in the kisser.

I don't really want Frank de Boer or Jonathan Ke Quan or someone from Awful Records to die, bruv. It's just an ongoing reference to my Why couldn't God have taken Copywrite instead of Camu Tao???? post innit.

Definitely would sacrifice Yung Lean or Milkaveli to a volcano to get Yams back, though, TBQH.

FOH with that unwarranted FdB hatred.

Yohan said...

But yeah, agreed with the sentiment. Phil was amazing, rip to the god.

I changed the post title to Frank Bough from Frank de Boer not to alienate the Dutch Martorialist readers 😄

Nowt against Frank Bough, like - he's just not as important a Frank as Frank Vincent.

Johnny Rap said...

Thanks for the title change.

Si Mane Price said...

Might change the title again to Why couldn't God have taken Francis Jeffers instead of Frank Vincent? to keep the football theme intact.

Just as long as you don't throw any shade on Swedish wrestling legend Frank Andersson, I'm good.

GOAT Junior moment: he's going senile and thinks that he and Bobby is on television, when it really is Curb Your Enthusiasm.

Si Mane Price said...

😃 I forgot about that scene.
