A Method actor, who knew?
'Sopranos' Actor Pleads Guilty

NEW YORK (AP) -- Vincent Pastore, who played gangster Salvatore "Big Pussy" Bonpensiero on "The Sopranos," was given a conditional discharge Monday after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor count of attempted assault following an altercation with a girlfriend…

Prosecutors said he punched her in the back of the head, grabbed her hair, and forced her head down on a car's gear shift during an argument. During his allocution before Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Ellen Coin, Pastore admitted striking Regina.

"Yes, I did," the actor told the judge. He declined further comment.
