That movie, while great, was not realistically cast. Ray Liotta and Robert DeNiro did not look anything like the real characters they played either.
Madsen is an unappreciated actor. Especially for the mob genre.
BTW, back to the subject of Bond, Madsen would have made an awesome recurring Felix Leiter.
