Oscar-nominated actor Robert Loggia, who was known for gravelly voiced gangsters from “Scarface” to “The Sopranos” but who was most endearing as Tom Hanks’ kid-at-heart toy-company boss in “Big,” has died. He was 85.

Loggia’s wife Aubrey Loggia said he died Friday at his home in Los Angeles after a five year battle with Alzheimer’s. “His poor body gave up,” she said. “He loved being an actor and he loved his life.”
