High-profile actor Vince Colosimo is facing bankruptcy proceedings with court documents alleging he owes a Melbourne law firm more than $30,000.
Colosimo has appeared in several recent Hollywood hits after becoming a household name playing gangland boss and standover man Alphonse Gangitano in Underbelly.
In documents filed with the Federal Court last month, Oakleigh based law firm Dandanis & Associates claim Colosimo owes them $36,042.
The documents allege Colosimo, 46, failed to comply with a Melbourne Magistrates Court order in November 2011 to pay the sum.
It is not known why the order was made but Dandanis & Associates have also claimed interest as part of the figure.
A bankruptcy notice was served on Colosimo on May 22.
A hearing was scheduled to take place last week but has been put off until October.
The Herald Sun is trying to reach Colosimo for comment.
As well as a starring role in Underbelly, Colosimo has also appeared in homegrown films including Chopper and Lantana.
Overseas he has appeared in hit TV show The Practice and Body of Lies alongside Leonardo DiCaprio.
He recently appeared alongside DiCaprio again in The Great Gatsby.
He last appeared in his own courtroom drama in 2009 when he went head to head with ex-wife Jane Hall over who were fighting over a house they shared in Northcote.
The pair had an 11-year relationship before splitting in 2007.
They have a daughter, Lucia.
