He wasn't really part of the act, he was an employee of the other 
brothers, he didn't have a comedy role, and his screen time was 
diminishing with each movie.  He decided to go into business as an 
agent.  Gummo, the fifth brother, soon joined him in the agency and, 
in fact, handled the three brothers' accounts.
