NPR: Many will remember his wrestling.
Many will remember his roles in Cyndi Lauper’s videos.
Some will remember his part as a henchman on Miami Vice.

Captain Lou Albano professional wrestler, actor and all-around legend, has died. He was 76.

As New York’s Daily News says, Albano was “known for his wild goatee, usually tamed by a rubber band, and his half-open Hawaiian shirts … (and was) a wrestling world fixture for more than a half-century.”
