Anthony Borgese: From Mobster Actor to Real Life Criminal

The Sopranos' Anthony Borgese pleads guilty

Anthony Borgese, who is known for his roles in “The Sopranos” and “Goodfellas,” isn’t just a mobster on screen. 

The 72 year-old plead guilty today to extorting a debtor who was beaten, not by Anthony Borgese, but by mob goons. Sounds like something right out of “The Sopranos” or “Goodfellas.”

But, this is real life and Anthony Borgese, aka Tony Darrow,  now faces real life consequences.

His sentencing date will be sometime this summer, after the charity golf tournament that he hosts to raise money for United Cerebral Palsy. For some reason, that just strikes me as ironic. 

Anthony Borgese could face up to 41 months in prison. He’s concerned for his family’s privacy and feels embarrassed. But, it seems a little late for that.
