Loggia starred in movies such as Big, Independence Day and An Officer and a Gentleman, but was perhaps best known for his role as Miami drug lord Frank Lopez in Brian De Palma's 1983 gangster classic, Scarface. His supporting role in 1985's Jagged Edge earned him an Academy Award nomination.

Loggia enjoyed success in television as well, earning Emmy nominations for his lead role in Mancuso, FBI in 1990 and for a guest appearance on Malcolm in the Middle in 2001.

He is survived by his wife, Audrey, his children, Tracy, John and Kristina, and a stepchild, Cynthia.
