‘Beverly Hills Cop’ actor was 75 – The Hollywood Reporter


Frank Pesce, a character actor whose credits included the first two Beverly Hills Cop movies and TV shows such as MiamiVice, Who’s the boss?, Jake and the Fatman and Karen Sisco, is dead. He was 75 years old.

Pesce died Feb. 6 at Providence Saint Joseph Medical Center in Burbank of complications from dementia, his girlfriend, Tammy Scher, said. The Hollywood Reporter.

Born in New York on December 8, 1946, Pesce worked as an actor for more than four decades. He made his screen debut in a 1976 episode of NBC Police Story and appeared as a doorman in Creed (2015).

Her most recognizable roles came in the first two Beverly Hills Cop movies starring Eddie Murphy. In the 1984 original, he played a cigarette buyer in the opening scene; in the 1987 sequel, he portrays a thug named Carlotta whom Alex Foley (Murphy) accuses of being a cop.

Pesce also played a bartender in Superior gun (1986) and a sage in Donny Brasco (1997).

Pesce had story credit out of 29th street (1991), a film about a very lucky man named Frank Pesce Jr. (Anthony LaPaglia) and his rather unlucky father, Frank Sr. (Danny Aiello).

“The Pesces in this film have their origins in real people (indeed, the real Frank Jr. is a character actor who appears like his own older brother, Vito), but in 29th street they seem to emerge mostly from the long tradition of Italian Americans in movies,” Robert Ebert wrote in his review.

In addition to Scher and her brother, survivors include her nieces, Vanessa, Danielle, Theresa and Angela, and her nephew, Angelo.
