Oscar-nominated actor Robert Loggia, who was known for gravelly-voiced tough-guy roles in films such as "Scarface" and the TV series "The Sopranos," but who was most endearing as Tom Hanks' kid-at-heart toy-company boss in "Big," died on Friday, Dec. 4, 2015, at his home in Los Angeles. He was 85.
Loggia also appeared in several comedies by director Blake Edwards (including three "Pink Panther" films), and portrayed Joseph, husband of Mary, in the 1965 Biblical epic, "The Greatest Story Ever Told."
Asked in 1990 how he maintained such a varied career, he responded: "I'm a character actor in that I play many different roles, and I'm virtually unrecognizable from one role to another. So I never wear out my welcome."
