Actor FRANK SIVERO is suing “The Simpsons”, claiming they used the Frankie Carbone character he played in “Goodfellas” as the model for their own mob character, Louie.  And get this:  He thinks they should pay him $250 MILLION.

Louie has been in 16 episodes since 1991, including one this past April.  Louie does resemble Sivero . . . but he claims the connection goes deeper than that.

Sivero says that while he was developing the Carbone character for “Goodfellas” in 1989, he was living in an apartment next door to some “Simpsons” writers, and they borrowed his, quote, “appearance and mannerisms.”   More on the story HERE
