"Goodfellas" actor Frank Sivero is suing Fox Television for $250 million for allegedly ripping off his wise-guy cinematic character and using it on "The Simpsons".Sivero played mobster Frankie Carbone in Martin Scorsese's 1990 classic "Goodfellas".Sivero, 62, who was also in "The Godfather Part II," said in 1989 that he was living in the same Los Angeles-area apartment complex as "The Simpsons" writers."Goodfellas" was released the following year and was a box office and critical hit, being nominated for six Oscars and winning one, while earning nearly twice its $25-million budget in the US alone, according to the lawsuit.
