Abe Vigoda, of Godfather, Barney Miller, and Fish fame (?) is still alive.
So... he's not dead.
Abe Vigoda found out he was dead in 1982. He was doing a play in Calgary, Alberta, while a People magazine writer visited the "Barney Miller" wrap party in Los Angeles, California.
"The Godfather" was Abe Vigoda's first film -- and more than 35 years later, he's still around to enjoy it.
"Somehow it mentioned in the article that 'the late Abe Vigoda' was not [there]," Vigoda recalls.
The error was corrected, but the damage had been done.
"I'm still quite [involved]," he says.
