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!
(Explaining how he ended up playing Det. Sgt. Fish on Barney Miller) "I got the role because the producer thought I looked tired. But I looked tired because I had been jogging earlier that day. He said to me, `You look tired, Abe.` I said, `I am. I was just jogging five miles.` He said, `You also look like you have hemorrhoids.` I said, `What are you? A doctor or a producer?` And he said, `Well, I`m a producer and you know what? You`ve got the role.` Just like that."
I`ve always been content just to be working and making a modest living for my wife and child.
