Louis Gross, who appeared as Perry Annunziata in 5 episodes of HBO's 'The Sopranos,' was arrested after he allegedly tried to use fake $100 bills.

Tony Soprano's muscleman got pinched again.
A bit actor who played Perry Annunziata on the hit New Jersey mob series and has a history of real-life arrests was collared last month for trying to pass off fugazi $100 bills for a purchase on Third Ave. in Gramercy on Aug. 11, authorities said.
Louis Gross, 31, who was the big boss's brawny driver in several episodes, was allegedly caught with a total of eight bills that were quickly recognized as fake and then apparently tried to ditch the evidence.
When cops approached him on scene, the officer "saw him throw" four bills to the ground, according to court papers.
The cop recognized them as fakes "from the low quality of the bills as compared to legitimate United States currency and by the fact that 8 bill shared only two serial numbers," the criminal complaint says.
The bit actor, who played Tony Soprano's driver in several episodes, was caught trying to use the fake cash on Third Ave. in Gramercy on Aug. 11, authorities said.

Gross was arraigned Thursday in Manhattan Supreme Court on multiple felony counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument tin the first degree, which carries up to 15 years in prison.
He hasn't made bail -- $3,500 bond or $2,500 cash -- and was being held at Rikers Island Thursday night, according to the Department of Correction's website.
The former fitness model-turned-actor was previously busted in 2006 on for breaking into a Queens home. That year he also pleaded guilty to petty larceny in Manhattan and got time served stemming from an arrest for lifting merchandise from Michael K. in SoHo.
Court records show he also has a current open case in Brooklyn for felony weight marijuana possession and misdemeanor weapons possession.
