'Scarface,' 'Big' Actor Robert Loggia Dies At 85

Robert Loggia mostly played tough guys over his six-decade film career, with one big exception.

Veteran actor Robert Loggia has died at the age of 85.

A New York native who often played gangsters and tough guys, Loggia's cinematic career spanned almost six decades and dozens of films and TV shows.

He's perhaps best remembered for two famous roles: drug dealer Frank Lopez in "Scarface," and toy company owner Mr. MacMillan in the Tom Hanks comedy "Big."

Loggia was also nominated for an Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role in the 1985 thriller "Jagged Edge," where he starred alongside Glenn Close and Jeff Bridges.

Loggia struggled with Alzheimer's for the last five years of his life. He is survived by his widow, three children and one stepchild.
