Frankie Carbone Sues the Simpsons

From Bitter Lawyer:

Frank Sivero, who is most remembered for his iconic role as a frozen corpse in Goodfellas, is suing the creators of the Simpsons. Sivero’s cause of action is based off of the supposed theft of his one-dimensional stereotype in the 1990 Scorsese classic, which Matt Groening et al turned it into a one-dimensional cartoon character that has since had a speaking role in the Simpsons for a grand total of 15 episodes. In other words it’s another banner day for those of use with a vowel at the end of our last name.

Everybody knows Jimmy Two Times is the only character in that movie worth $50 million, but you don’t see Anthony Powers going around suing people. (Whoa look what I found!)

Previously, Frank Sivero sues a deli over a sandwich.
