Robert Loggia Dies

Actor Robert Loggia Dead at 85

Oscar- and Emmy-nominated actor Robert Loggia died Friday in Los Angeles, our sister site Variety reports. He was 85.

On the small screen where he got his start, Loggia was best known for portraying the titular agent on Mancuso, FBI from 1989-90. The role earned him an Emmy nod for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series.

More recently, the actor guest-starred on shows including Malcolm in the Middle (for which he received another Emmy nomination), The Sopranos and Dharma & Greg. His last TV credit was Family Guy; he lent his voice to two episodes.

Loggia also had a robust film career, most notably the 1985 thriller Jagged Edge, which garnered him a Supporting Actor Oscar nomination. Other big-screen credits included Scarface, An Officer and a Gentleman and Big.

    I just looked at the movie Over the Too yesterday and he was in it and I looked him up to remember other movies he had been in like Necessary Roughness which I loved. RIP

    He was also Frank from Scarface. RIP.

    I loved him in everything he did but I have to say his Chopsticks dance with Tom Hanks in Big is my all time favorite. That wonderful raspy voice combined with a child like innocence still touches me. RIP and condolences to his family.

    Totally believe the evidence was planted. So much reasonable doubt in this case regardless of what was left out. And Dassey’s conviction is a complete joke. False convictions happen all the time.
