Vigoda, who played mobster Sal Tessio in the iconic film, died last month at the age of 94. A character actor with a memorable voice, Vigoda was also known for his roles in the movies "Joe Versus The Volcano" and "Look Who's Talking," and for playing NYPD detective Phil Fish on the TV sitcoms "Barney Miller" and "Fish."
