This bugs the hell out of me. Mainly because a police officer is now dead and it's going to be in my mind whenever I watch A Bronx Tale... one of the most underrated movies ever.

I can still watch the naked gun movies and laugh without being reminded that oj simpson is a murderer.

Yes but that's very different. OJ is getting the shit beat out of him in those movies, so it almost adds to the enjoyment seeing a murderer get beat up at every opportunity.

Hopefully Bevilacqua will get what's coming to him in the same fashion as on The Sopranos.

The saddest thing in life is wasted talent.

Fuck him if it's true. Let him rot in jail for the rest of his life. Prick.

Robert De Niro is probably rolling over in his grave. Shame!

I think he's going to be a bit shocked at the news he's dead?

Tony: See if we got something to drink. So what can I get you? You want a Fanta, something like that? How is that? I mean, you sure you want a diet drink? You don't want something with some sugar in it?
Big Pussy: There's only diet.
Matthew Bevilaqua: It's good.
Tony: You finished?
Matthew Bevilaqua: Thank you, T.
Tony: 'Cause that sugarless motherf***er, it's the last f***ing drink you're ever gonna have!

I was lucky enough to catch "A Bronx Tale" on some movie channel last christmas(i think i was hiding from the rest of the family). I came in around 15 minutes late but i really couldn't turn it off. It was a really great film. The guy could've been someone great in his future. Well I guess that's what drugs do to ya.
What's funny about this is that my mom called me last nite and told me she saw that a Soprano's star was arrested for murder. I kinda freaked out and asked who, then my pops rang in and said he played one of the gangsters. I kinda laughed and told him that really helps, and asked if he ever watched the show.

Judging by the movies he's been in over the past 10 years, that's arguable

Exactly. I swear some of these other people take things too literally.

This guy was also in Crimson Tide as the officer who was being pressured by Denzel to fix the radio.

I saw this on GMA this morning.

He is not really being "held" though. He was shot in the chest and is in critical condition. I thought it was ironic that they did not mention that until the end of the story.
