Primo Cassarino is a New York mobster who became an enforcer for Gambino crime family, and extorted money from actor Steven Seagal. Cassarino’s own lawyer once observed that his client had “the foulest mouth in Brooklyn.” At one point, law enforcement recorded Cassarino berating a debtor who was late on a loan payment.

On March 17, 2003, Cassarino, Peter Gotti, Ciccone, and Richard V. Gotti were convicted of labor racketeering, extortion, and 63 other counts under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) Act. Steven Seagal testified for the prosecution about the mobsters’ extortion attempt.
