Then: Forysthe wore prosthetics and a wig to play hitman Flattop, who did indeed sport that hair style. Known for playing heavies, Forysthe broke out in 1987, thanks to roles in ‘Raising Arizona’ and ‘Extreme Prejudice.’

Now: Forsythe is one of the stars on the TV series ‘Mob Doctors.’ In 2012 he also portrayed Jake LaMotta in ‘The Bronx Bull,’ which was initially titled ‘Raging Bull II’ but had to drop its association with the 1980 De Niro/Scorsese classic after a lawsuit.
