Frank Vincent died on Wednesday at the age of 78. He's

He died during the surgery in a New Jersey hospital. In total, Vincent acted in almost 100 movies and TV shows.

According to TMZ, the veteran actor suffered a heart attack last week.

"I think "The Sopranos" probably solidifies the misconception that people have about New Jersey to begin with", he told NJ.com. Apparently, Robert De Niro saw that movie and showed it to Martin Scorsese, who was impressed with both Vincent and Pesci.

Watch Vincent's most iconic movie scene below. The actor later collaborated with Scorcese in 1990 for Goodfellas and again in 1995 for Casino.

The Blast adds that actor Vincent Pastore, who co-starred with Vincent in The Sopranos, notified friends of Vincent's death. "The Jersey mob is nothing - they don't even prick their fingers when they do the ceremony".

Vincent also appeared in "Raging Bull", "Casino" and "Do the Right Thing". Most recently, Vincent appeared in an episode of Law & Order: SVU.

In 2006, Vincent gave an interview to Ask Men on the heels of his book release.

Our thoughts are with Frank's family and friends during this hard time.
