We just learned that Carmine Caridi, the actor that played Carmine Rosato in the mob drama flick 'Godfather' has died at 85.
According to Caridi's friend, actor and director Chazz Palminteri, Caridi passed away at Cedars-Sinai hospital in Los Angeles after slipping into a comatose state. We are uncertain of what had caused Caridi to go into a coma but were informed that he did not come out of the coma.
Caridi had a few films under his belt such as "Starsky and Hutch", "Taxi", "Fame", Simon & Simon" and played Detective Vince Gotelli in "NYPD Blue".
Interesting fact, Caridi returned in 'The Godfather part III' as Albert Volpe.
