Musician. Actor. Activist. Legend. All of these words are a more than accurate description for Steven Van Zandt, who first rose to stardom and prominence as a member of Bruce Springsteen‘s The E Street Band and then demonstrated his acting chops on shows like The Sopranos and Lilyhammer. In conjunction with the release of his new autobiography Unrequited Infatuations, Van Zandt stops by the latest episode of The Movies That Made Me to not only share stories from his life and career, but to discuss a few of his favorite films — which include everything from the fantasy-tinged drama The Fisher King to the gangster flick Once Upon a Time in America and beyond.
All of the titles he discusses with show hosts Josh Olson and Joe Dante can be found at Movies Unlimited’s website, providing a look at the inner life of a talent who has thrilled millions with his work across the decades.
