Goodfellas: Behind-the-Scenes Secrets

Billy Batts

If you’ve seen Goodfellas countless times or even just once, you definitely remember Billy Batts. Played by Frank Vincent, Batts makes one too many jokes and ends up meeting his demise in a brutal way. However, in the original script Batts lived to see another scene. The original script called for the party (Batts’ welcome home at the bar) to open the film — only for his death to be revealed later on.
