Most of the crew he was with died in prison or with a bullet in their head, so I don't know that he did much worse.

I wonder if there was still a bounty on him after all these years...

Hill died at a Los Angeles hospital of an undisclosed illness on Tuesday, Nate Caserta, the son of Hill's fiancÚ Lisa Schinelli Casterta, confirmed.

"[His] heart just stopped.

Maybe, but I kind of doubt it. He wasn't even in witness protection for the last part of his life, and I can't imagine any current guys in the mob care about stuff from 30 years ago.

He was doing something like running a restaurant in Connecticut for the last whatever number of years. He wasn't in witness protection. It's pretty obvious the old Italian mafia doesn't have 1/1000th the juice that it used to.

Interesting guy. The commentary track on Goodfellas with him and the FBI agent was neat to listen to. One thing they didn't put in the movie was the fact that he was in the army (paratrooper in the 82nd Airborne). Probably picked up a useful skill or two that translated to gangster life during that time.

I'm sure he lived longer than he thought he would.

It's an interesting conundrum if you're a mobster.

A guy like him may have eased your rise up the career ladder by taking out people above you, which you like. But at the same time, you want to send a pretty strong message to the people below you that snitches get stitches. My suspicion is that the second philosophy tends to hold more weight, but nonetheless there is room for a conflict of thought.

ROFL



Yea, im sure most of his old crew are dead by now or too old to care about him anymore.


I wonder how they felt about him becoming this "folk hero" since the movie has become so iconic.

Poor Mr. Hill. I heard he died of a narrow urethra, I tell you what.

One thing about Hill - I find it very, very difficult to believe he never killed anybody. I realize it's not something he'd own up to or want in a book/movie about his life, but seriously, come on. All those years dealing with Tommy and Jimmy and he always just stood by watching? I call bullshit on that one.

that was always an odd scene when she puts the cold gun into her panties luckily it was the 80's so I am sure her kid and play style pubes kept her warm

I never got how the gun breaks when they put it in Billy Batts's mouth. Did it blow up, or did he just smash it against his face?

Anybody ever listen to this guy when he was on Howard Stern? He is a ****ing nut and a extremely weird individual. Specially when his ex wife was on that was classic
