THE GODFATHER ACTOR ALEX ROCCO DEAD
Hollywood actor Alex Rocco, the gravelly-voiced star whose gallery of memorable characters included Moe Greene, the bespectacled Las Vegas casino owner in The Godfather, has died. Rocco, who was 79, died on Saturday at his home in the Studio City neighbourhood of Los Angeles. His manager, Susan Zachary, said the actor died of cancer, reported New York Times. Rocco won an Emmy in 1990 for his role as a larger-than-life old-school talent agent in the well-reviewed but short-lived Jon Cryer sitcom, The Famous Teddy Z.
