Actor Abe Vigoda died Tuesday. He was 94 years old.
Vigoda, described as a sunken-eyed character actor, died of old age, according to his daughter Carol.
Vigoda was best known for his roles as the grumpy detective Phil Fish in the police sitcom "Barney Miller" and for Sal Tessio in "The Godfather." (Video via ABC / "Barney Miller," Paramount Pictures / "The Godfather")
Oddly enough, Vigoda was also pretty well-known for false reports of his death. The actor was first found alive after a false report in 1982. The Vigoda death hoax was a running gag ever since.
Vigoda is survived by his daughter.
