Scarpelli is a supporting character in "Ourselves Alone" played by co-star John Cenatiempo. He is the nephew of prominent New York Italian American crime boss Joe Masseria. He is responsible for collecting protection money in the lower East Side along with Incrocci. Together they visit a card game run by Meyer Lansky and Charlie Luciano and tell Lansky that he owes tribute to Masserria because the game is in Masseria's territory.
They notice Jimmy Darmody cash out of the game and follow him when he leaves. They accost him in Tompkins Square Park and try to steal his winnings. Darmody kills them both.
