An actor who played a mobster on HBO’s "The Sopranos" and in the feature film "GoodFellas" has been sentenced to six months of house arrest and two years’ probation by a Brooklyn federal judge, reports the New York Post.

Tony Darrow, in addition to his acting career, was a real-life Gambino associate, the story reports. Darrow’s real name is Anthony Borgese, the report adds.

He played the owner of a club in "GoodFellas" and played mobster Larry Barese in "The Sopranos," acting during the show’s entire run. His sentence was handed down for his role in arranging a mob beating.

Borgese, 73, has appeared in a public-service announcement warning against the life of a mobster and has addressed youth groups about the downfalls of a life of crime, the story says.
