A former “Sopranos” actor and gambling aficionado is accused of being tied to real-life wise guys, according to indictments announced Tuesday by the state attorney general’s office.

John Marinacci, 56, of Manhattan, was among the 37 individuals indicted by a Brooklyn grand jury for taking part in a gambling and loan sharking ring allegedly controlled by the Gambino crime family.

Marinacci played a dealer in two “Sopranos” episodes, and also had an unnamed part in “Boardwalk Empire,” according to his IMDB.com profile.

Attorney General Eric Schneiderman said the arrests “cripple a network of criminal enterprises.” Those indicted face up to 25 years in prison on enterprise corruption charges.
