Joe Mantegna Joe Mantegna looks - in person - less Mafia-esque then his animated character "Fat Tony", but not by much.

The actor has starred in films such as The Godfather III, House of Games the made-for-tv "The Last Don" and even received an emmy nomination for his turn as Dean Martin in "The Rat Pack".

Bart the Murderer - Tony employs Bart as a bartender after tasting his skill in making a "Manhattan". Bart believes his stink with the Springfield Mafia has gone too far when Principal Skinner winds up missing, per his request.

More to Come!

Al Capone, Al Capone John Gotti, these names and others have inspired the character of Springfield's "Fat Tony". The secret organization known as the "Mafia" seems contemporary to many people, but is believed to originate as early as the 9th century in Sicily.

Its intention was to create an organization of Dons and low-level gangsters. The principles of honor, obedience and over time, criminal behavior, were (and still are) pilars in the Mafia society.

The pinnacle of Mafia-power in the United States came in the 20th century, as the Mafia rose in authority much in part to prohibition, later moved on to the casinos in Las Vegas and primarily today are known for involvement with labor unions.

Some great films have been made about the Italian Mafia, but this is by far my favorite:

Goodfellas - (1990)
Goodfellas "As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster," says Henry Hill, the man profiled in Martin Scorsese's Academy Award winning gangster-pic. Arguably the greatest movie about the American Mafia, Ray Liotta stars and narrates, but the greatest performances come from supporting characters played by Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci.

And let's not forget The Sopranos, HBO's mega-hit that tried - and was apparently very successful - in turning the Mafia into a viewer-friendly drama, sometimes comedy.
