TriviaHas one daughter, Carol. In the 1980s, a well-known magazine referred to Vigoda as "the late Abe Vigoda" in a story, leading to the belief by many that he was dead. Abe enjoyed some publicity from the premature death announcement, even posing for a photograph while sitting up in a coffin! Was originally considered to play the part of The Monster in Mel Brooks' comedy classic Young Frankenstein (1974), given his height and tremendous resemblance to Boris Karloff. Was portrayed by Michael J. Nelson on an episode of "Mystery Science Theater 3000" (1988). Abe's father Samuel Vigoda was a Tailor in New York City.
