American Icons: Captain Lou Albano

The only people who will feel great loss upon the passing of Captain Lou Albano will be those who grew up in the eighties.

Lou Albano was a wrestler in the World Wrestling Federation. Some might remember him from the animated series Hulk Hogan's Rock 'n' Wrestling.

Lou Albano appeared in several Cindy Lauper music videos, as one of wrestling's most active stars, helping the sport cross over to mainstream consciousness.

Lou Albano also played Mario. Yes, the Italian plumber. This was in the TV show The Super Mario Bros. Super Show!, which was the earlier version before John Leguizamo played Luigi.

Louis Vincent Albano. 1933-2009.
