Paul Sorvino has died. His publicist, Roger Neal, says that he was a powerful actor

who played everything from the mob boss in "Goodfellas" to an early role in the long-running cop show "Law & Order." He was 83.

Sorvino died of natural causes on Monday, and his wife, Dee Dee, was with him.

Dee Dee Sorvino released a statement through Neal in which she said, "Our hearts are broken, and there will never be another Paul Sorvino."

Sorvino was born in Brooklyn, New York. He was nominated for a Tony Award for his role in

"That Championship Season," in which he also played in the movie version. He also played Henry Kissinger in "Nixon," "Dick Tracy," "Reds," and "The Rocketeer."

Before he got his start on Broadway in the mid-1960s,  Sorvino went to the American Musical and Dramatic Academy and thought  about becoming an opera singer.
