FUN LOVIN' CRIMINALS star Huey Morgan turned down a role in hit US TV series The Sopranos, because he was scared of being stereotyped.

The SCOOBY SNACKS star, who was once personally invited to visit notorious London gangster REGGIE KRAY, is desperate to erase his jail-bird image because he fears it will jeopardise his planned move into acting.

He says, "I love the show but it would be exactly what someone would expect me to do."
