— Roman to Noah
|Portrayed by:||Peter Fonda|
Louie, Also known as "The Roman" is an extremely powerful Italian mob boss and the primary antagonist of The Boondock Saints II: All Saints Day. He directly hired Ottillo Panza who called the Saints out by killing a priest.
Friendship with Noah MacManusEdit
Louie was a young Italian immigrant in New York City in the 1950's. He was best friends with Noah MacManus, father of Connor and Murphy MacManus. After Noah's father died, Louie used Noah to kill off the competition of the crime family he worked for. When Louie was given the offer to become Mafia Don for Noah's imprisonment, he took the chance and set up Noah in a police trap. Louie became an extremely powerful mob boss and MacManus was sentenced 25 to life.
Louie spent the rest of his life with an unbelievable amount of power to all Italian crime families. He came up with many decisions the Mafia made like teaming up with the Chinese and assassinating Father McKinney. All Mafiosos referred to him as "The Old Man" or "The Roman," and was respected like a "Mafia Oracle."
At the end of the second film, Noah discovered where the Roman was hiding. He and the Saints, including Romeo, went to confront him about Noah's arrest. After the Roman gave a speech about their past, several mobsters attacked Noah and the Saints in the movie's final battle. When the Saints survived the attack, Louie knew his time had come and passively allowed Noah to kill him.
