    Many, many great roles. He was simply fantastic in the first season of Homicide: Life on the Street.

    Veteran actor Jon Polito dies at 65; starred in 'The Big Lebowski,' 'Miller's Crossing'

    Born in 1950, the Philadelphia native had a career that spanned three-and-a-half decades. It m with the 1980s miniseries “The Gangster Chronicles,” in which Polito played New York mobster Tommy “Three Finger Brown” Luchesse in the NBC series. That was the first of his many Mafioso and criminal roles — both dramatic and comedic.

    Among the most memorable of his roles was his turn as hotheaded gang chief Johnny Caspar in “Miller’s Crossing,” who pronounced “ethics” as “ettics.”

    “Gangster parts are incredibly theatrical,” Polito told The Times in 1990. “I felt like I was this fallen king — like Nero. I blustered and grunted so much that I was worried I might be going over the top. But everyone said, ‘Play him as big as you want to go.’ ”

    Polito died of cancer Thursday at City of Hope Hospital, where he was being treated for multiple myeloma, his manager, Maryellen Mulcahy, told the Associated Press Friday.

    Director John McNaughton, who worked with Polito on the 1990s series “Homicide: Life on the Street” and 2006’s “Masters of Horror,” first shared the news of Polito’s death Friday and paid tribute to the late actor on Facebook.

    “Very sad to learn that my dear friend and collaborator, Jon Polito has passed away,” McNaughton wrote, adding, “He appeared in over 100 films, countless TV episodes and on Broadway. Jon was a born actor and will be deeply missed by his legion of friends, fans, family and of course his long time partner, Darryl Armbruster to whom I send my condolences. R.I.P. old pal - JM.”
