The actor, who specialized in playing crooks and cops like Paulie Cicero in “Goodfellas” and NYPD sergeant Phil Cerreta in “Law & Order,” has passed away. His age was 83.

The Mayo Clinic said he died of natural causes Monday morning in Jacksonville, Florida. Sorvino has dealt with health issues over the past few years.

“I am completely devastated. The love of my life & the most wonderful man who has ever lived is gone. I am heartbroken.” said his wife, DeeDee Sorvino, on Instagram.

His daughter, actress Mira Sorvino, is probably best known for her role as Sgt. Frank Cerreta on “Law & Order,” as Mafia don Pail Cicero in Martin Scorsese’s beloved gangster film “Goodfellas” and as Kissinger in Oliver Stone’s “Nixon.”

Mira Servino tweeted: “My father, the great Paul Sorvino, has passed,” she wrote. “My heart is rent asunder – a life of love and joy and wisdom with him is over. He was the most wonderful father.”

He has accumulated over 170 credits and dozens of roles in recent years, such as “Criminal Minds: Beyond Borders,” “Bad Blood,” “Undercover Grandpa,” and “The Goldbergs.”

As part of the motley crew of heavily made-up villains, Manolis played Lips in Warren Beatty’s highly stylized crime drama “Dick Tracy.”

Sorvino appeared in four of Beatty’s five films as a director – “Reds,” a political satire in 1998 called “Bulworth,” playing the head of an insurance company seeking a political favor from Beatty and again in “Rules Don’t Apply.”

Sorvino was born in Brooklyn to Italian-American parents; he spoke fluent Italian and aspired to be an opera singer. In New York, he explored acting and studied with acting master Sanford Meisner.

His Broadway debut was in 1964 with “Bajour.” As a result, he starred in the comic play “Mating Dance”; he worked at an advertising agency as an executive before returning to acting.

He directed “The Trouble With Cali,” written by his daughter Amanda Sorvino, in 2012.

As a child actor, Sorvino appeared in “Where’s Poppa?” in 1970 and in “The Panic in Needle Park” in 1971.

Due to severe asthma, the actor founded the Sorvino Asthma Foundation and wrote a bestselling book, “How to Become a Former Asthmatic.”

Along with his wife, Mira, and Amanda, Sorvino is survived by a son, Michael, and five grandchildren.
