Jeremy Allen White is not only on the hit Hulu show “The Bear,” he’s the actor who plays “Carmy" Berzatto, an award-winning chef from New York who returns to his hometown of Chicago to take over his late brother Michael's failing restaurant. In other words, he’s the boss.

Could he end up playing both the boss and The Boss?

There is a film in the works about the making of Bruce Springsteen’s 1982 “Nebraska” album. The movie is to be called “Deliver Me From Nowhere” which borrows from a line in the song “State Trooper” from that album.

That song serves as almost an eerie love letter to the grit of New Jersey.

The history of the album is explored through the movie and as any true Springsteen fan knows it was a struggle. Springsteen recorded the songs as demos on a 4-track recorder, intending to rerecord them with the E Street band.

His people thought of many different ways to handle this album. Ultimately it was decided that there was something so beautifully raw about those demos, even with the sound quality not being professional and polished, that Springsteen could release them as an album, warts and all.

The rest is history. A history this film will cover, and Emmy-winning Jeremy Allen White might play the lead. Deadline is reporting the lead actor of “The Bear,” with season three ready for release this June, is being looked at for the role of Springsteen. Bruce’s longtime manager Jon Landau and Springsteen himself are said to be involved with the project.

Could a guy born and raised in New York City and who attended Professional Performing Arts School in Hell’s Kitchen pull off capturing New Jersey’s blue collar poet laureate? Yes.

He has a look and an edge that works and is 33 years old, Bruce’s exact age when “Nebraska” was released. And again, he was good enough in “The Bear” to have won the one award keeping Bruce Springsteen from being an EGOT winner, an Emmy.

New Jersey fans of “The Bear” will surely have an interest in “Deliver Me From Nowhere” if he indeed lands the role.

The award is given to artists from any medium who carry on the legacy of its namesake by speaking “for the voiceless with an understanding of how a platform can be used to shine a light on our world, showing us what needs to be fixed and how to fix it.”
