Moe Greene’s cashed in his chips

Alex Rocco, who went from the tough Winter Hill section of Boston to film immortality as Vegas casino owner Moe Greene in “The Godfather,” died at the age of 79.

The gravelly voiced Rocco studied acting with the late Leonard Nimoy, a fellow Boston-area transplant.

Rocco won an Emmy Award in 1990 for best supporting actor in a comedy for playing sneaky Hollywood talent agent Al Floss on the short-lived CBS series "The Famous Teddy Z," starring Jon Cryer.

He was born Alexander Federico Petricone in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
