One of the most notorious mobsters of all time is making his way to Martin Scorsese’s HBO period drama- Boardwalk Empire. Benjamin ‘Bugsy’ Siegel will be played by the young Rescue Me actor, Micheal Zegan.
Zegan will portray a younger version of ‘Bugsy’ as a “tough, smart, urban kid.” This will give viewers a chance to watch the character grow and change from young man to adult. Surely the addition of yet another gangster to the Boardwalk Empire stable will cause even more drama for the Atlantic City fat cats.
Boardwalk Empire’s second season will begin in the fall of 2011 only on HBO.
