Actor, Vinny Vella, who starred in “Casino” and many other gangster movies has died at the age of 72 after battling cancer.

Vella’s people posted a message late Wednesday night, saying, “We are saddened to report that Vinny Vella has passed and I’m sure that no one is more saddened than himself.

Vinny loved life from his family to his friends and fans he was easily one of the funniest, endearing actors to have ever graced the screen.”

“Arguably the fastest on the draw, king of the comebacks. His verbal jousting was legendary but many know Vinny for his favorite saying – ‘Who’s better than you?’ Well Vinny, I think we all can agree on the answer to that, it was you, it always was you! We miss you my boy.”

Vinny’s son, Vinny Vella Jr., tells us his father had liver cancer.

Vinny, who has 74 acting credits to his name, memorably played deli owner/mobster Artie Piscano alongside Robert De Niro in “Casino.” He also acted with De Niro in “Analyze That.”

His son also commented, “RIP to my father. I love you so much and I’m so heart broken. You are no longer in pain- no more suffering pops. I love you.”

He was survived by his son and his wife, Margaret.

‘Game Of Throne’ finale streaming blocked in China over its trade war with Trump

Film watchers in China were not allowed to see the final episode of Game Of Throne on Sunday, over the nation’s growing trade war with the US and President Donald Trump.

Instead of finding out who ended up sitting on the Iron Throne, Chinese ‘Thrones’ watchers received a message informing them of ‘transmission medium problems.’

The message was posted by Tencent Video, the subsidiary of Tencent Holdings Ltd, which has had exclusive streaming rights to the premium cable network’s content in China since 2014.

‘We will notify you of another broadcasting time,’ Tencent said in a more detailed communique posted on its Weibo social media account one hour before the last episode was supposed to air.

HBO told the Wall Street Journal on Monday that the China Thrones blackout wasn’t a technical issue on the company’s part.

An HBO spokesperson confirmed Tencent blocked transmission of the series finale.

The Verge reports that thousands of Chinese Thrones fans have vented their frustrations on Weibo, China’s largest social media company.

Many threatened to cancel their Tencent accounts if their monthly subscription fees weren’t refunded.

The debacle is the latest fallout in the intensifying battle over US trade tariffs placed on Chinese goods by the Trump administration.
