Sopranos Actor Arrested

John Marinacci, 56, was one of the individuals caught up in a New York State sports betting sting alleged to have ties with the Gambino crime family.  Marinacci appeared in two episodes of the popular HBO series “The Sopranos”.  He has also appeared on another HBO series “Boardwalk Empire”. 

Marinacci was charged this week with enterprise corruption for taking bets and collecting monies for "the Gambino Bookmaking Enterprise," court papers revealed.

The complaint alleges that the New York sports betting ring utilized an offshore wagering call center.

Ironically another Sopranos star, Vince Curatola, made headlines back in August when he was hired to represent one such offshore wagering call center, PayPerhead.com.
