You may find it odd that we’re not hearing ‘The Boss’ Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band announce any concert dates this summer but that’s because he will now be taking a swing at acting.
According to Deadline.com Springsteen, 64, will hop on board with Springsteen’s E Street Band guitarist Steven Van Zandt who’s co-writing and is the executive producer of the show Lilyhammer.
With the third season in production, Van Zandt plays a priest, while Springsteen will be portraying the owner of a mortuary. This will be The Boss’ acting début besides doing a cameo in the John Cusack movie High Fidelity but he played himself, not a fictional character as he reportedly does here.
Springsteen is also set to release a book in the fall called Outlaw Petewhichis based on the lyrics to his 2009 song of the same title.
