I have more season 2 spoilers to share for “Boardwalk Empire”. They have found their ‘Bugsy’ Siegel in Michael Zegen. He has been cast to play the teenager who will eventually become the infamous gangster.
Zegen’s character – described by HBO as “a tough, smart urban kid [and] aspiring Jewish gangster” – will be referred to as “Benny” when we first meet him. The nickname of “Bugsy” didn’t kick in until the late 1930s.
In other “Boardwalk Empire” news Ausiello has revealed this little spoilery tidbit :).
Question: Any other cast additions to Boardwalk Empire in Season 2? —Jacob
Ausiello: In addition to the arrival of legendary gangster Bugsy Siegel, S2 will introduce Al Capone’s twenty something brothers, Ralph and Frank.
