Vincent Schiavelli 1948 - 2005

Vincent Schiavelli, who died of cancer at his home in Sicily on December 26 aged 57, was a popular character actor noted for his roles in films such as Ghost and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest. Schiavelli's somewhat hangdog countenance appeared in more than 120 film and television shows; he excelled at parts which required an eccentric presentation, and in 1997 the magazine Vanity Fair declared him one of the best character actors in America. > > -- [telegraph.co.uk](http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/2005/12/29/db2903.xml&sSheet=/portal/2005/12/29/ixportal.html) > >
