Underbelly actor Vince Colosimo is listed to face a Melbourne court in February, reportedly on drug charges.

The Melbourne actor, 50, was arrested in Melbourne’s northern suburbs in September after police allegedly found in his possession a small quantity of what the Herald Sun reports was believed to be methamphetamine.

Colosimo became a household name for his role gangland figure Alphone Gangitano in the 2008 series of Underbelly, as well as critically acclaimed parts in Australian films Chopper and Lantana.

He later tried appeared in Hollywood films Body of Lies and The Great Gatsby.

But he has had a lower profile since, and in 2014 it was revealed he was working on construction sites to make financial ends meet while in-between acting roles.
