A Goodfellas Actor Sued The Simpsons for Stealing His Likeness. Does He Have a Case?

Earlier this week, Frank Sivero filed a lawsuit against Fox TV Studios, 21st Century Fox America, and Matt Groening, asking for compensation for using what he claims is his likeness for the character of Louie on The Simpsons. Specifically, Sivero has asked them for $250 million, arguing in his suit that Louie is based on Frankie Carbone, the character Sivero played in Goodfellas.

So how alike are Louie and Frankie? Watch them in action side by side and see for yourself.
