10 Actors You Didn’t Realise Were In The Sopranos

7. Nancy Sinatra & Frank Sinatra, Jr.

Nancy SinatraEpisodes: Final Season: €˜Chasing It€™, Season Two: €˜The Happy Wanderer€™ Among the principal cast of The Sopranos is Steven Van Zandt the guitarist with Bruce Springsteen€™s E Street Band. Van Zandt was cast on David Chase€™s love of music despite a limited acting background. Keeping with the tradition of musicians on the show €“ these appearances are much more interesting. The children of Ol€™ Blue Eyes himself €“ Frank Sinatra appeared at separate times as themselves over the series. Frank, Jr. features in Season Two as a card player of the Soprano-run €˜Executive Game€™. This is also the game where Robert Patrick (the T-1000 of Terminator 2) bets his entire fortune and loses it all. Nancy Sinatra, the singer of such hits as €˜Bang, Bang€™ and €˜These Boots Are Made for Walking€™ appears in the final season at a party for the newly crowned boss of New York Phil Leotardo (Frank Vincent). She even interrupts a heated discussion between Tony and Phil brazenly asking: €˜you two going home with each other?€™ What is confounding is that the children of Sinatra would continue to perpetuate their family€™s connection to the Mafia. Sinatra€™s Mob connections allegedly coerced a Hollywood producer to cast the singer in an Oscar winning role in From Here to Eternity. This would serve as inspiration in The Godfather. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AQ8e3mO6TVE
