The Presidential Daily Brief


  1. Alex Rocco Dies

    Character Actor Alex Rocco Dies at Age 79

    “Do you know who I am?” he asked Michael Corleone in The Godfather. Best known for playing Moe Greene in the mobster classic, Rocco succumbed to cancer on Saturday at his California home. The longtime supporting actor — who learned his craft with Leonard Nimoy — had recurring roles in TV favorites like Starsky and Hutch, and put his gravelly voice to use in The Simpsons. Fellow actors are paying tribute, with one noting that with Rocco gone there’s “less magic in the world today.”
