Bruce Springsteen will make his acting debut on the next season of Netflix's original series Lilyhammer. The show, which is headed into its third season, stars Springsteen's E Street Band guitarist and mandolin player Steven Van Zandt as a former mobster relocated to Norway by the Federal Witness Protection Program after testifying against his mafia cohorts.

Springsteen will join the show for a guest appearance as a mortuary owner, reports Deadline Hollywood. As well, Van Zandt’s Sopranos co-star Tony Sirico is said to be joining on with a recurring role as a priest.
This mark's Springsteen's true acting debut. (Though he appeared in High Fidelity, he played himself. And this recent 10-minute short film music video doesn't really count either.)
