Steven Van Zandt Compares The Boss To Tony Soprano


E Street Band member Steven van Zandt was asked to compare Bruce Springsteen to Tony Soprano during a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter.

"Um, probably Bruce is more ambitious than Tony Soprano. Yeah, I'm not sure Tony Soprano had the great vision of where to exactly go with his career, so to speak," he said.

Van Zandt co-starred on the series as the thug, Silvio.

Currently, the multi-talented van Zandt is working on his role in Lilyhammer, which he was asked to compare to his previous Sopranos role:

"Silvio's job was very narrow; all he really did was to watch Tony's back and try to keep him alive. So he was cautious and deliberate, and the only guy on the show who didn't want to be the boss. This [Lilyhammer] guy really is a boss, much more outgoing and a little bit crazier and wilder . . ."
