Mobster Mickey Spillane's

Son Falls to His Death

7/11/2010 12:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0710_bobby_spillane_bn_gettyBobby Spillane -- a small-time actor and son of legendary mobster Mickey Spillane -- fell out of a sixth floor window in Manhattan and died today. He was 45.

Foul play is not suspected.

Spillane had guest roles on "Law & Order" and "Rescue Me" and wrote an Off-Broadway play called "All Dolled Up" about a real-life cross-dressing gangster.

His father, Mickey, was gunned down in 1977.

There are two "notable" Mickey Spillane's. One lived from 1918 until 2006 and was an author. The other was in fact a mobster (and this man's father) lived from 1924 until 1977.

I think you've confused Spillane with Coen. Your facts are all wrong. Spillane died in 2006 and he was a writer.

Someone better slap the Saturday night intern!

I am saddened that any person should lose their life this way but you guys need to get your facts straight. Micky Spillane was a writer....Not a mobster. You need to hire some people who know what they are doing and by the way.... WHO PROOF READS THESE ARTICLES BEFORE THEY ARE PRINTED!!!!!!!

Until today, the writer Mickey Spillane was the only one I had ever heard of. How interesting that there would be another person using the same first and last name with an entirely different "career!" I did see some information on the other one on Wikipedia which clarified it a bit. Someone has even updated it to include the son't death yesterday!

okay, and so i read more about his death on foxnews.com. it says he was "leaning on a screen when it gave way?" i live 3 blocks from this guy, and in this neighborhood and the building he lives, why on earth would he be leaning on the screen? people barely look out the window here, especially not from the 6th floor - not high enough for any type of view....and so i ask again, how did he "accidentally" fall out the window? if they ruled out foul play, they need to look into suicide...
