GoodFellas Jimmy Conway "Dead Stare"
James "Jimmy" Conway is a fictional character in the film Goodfellas played by Robert De Niro. The character was based on real-life gangster Jimmy Burke. The real-life Jimmy Burke's mother's name was Conway and the filmmakers were not allowed to use the Burke name, as Burke was still alive, and so Scorsese used Conway.
There are others at the extreme periphery of the mob including Morris 'Morrie' Kessler (Chuck Low) who furnishes comic relief right up to the point calculating Jimmy Conway decides to rub Kessler out rather than pay Kessler his share of the Luftansa heist.
