Steven Van Zandt can't remember when he saw his first gangster movie.  "They were always on TV when I was growing up," says the E Street Band guitarist and star of the addictive Norwegian mob drama Lilyhammer, which returns to Netflix on December 13th. "You'd see gangster movies, westerns and horror movies. It's a wonder we turned out the way we did. . . Those movies completely shaped how the world sees the mob. They also take you into another world. What's realistic doesn't even matter. All that matters is whether or not they convince you." Now, to celebrate the new season of Lilyhammer, Van Zandt shares his favorite mob movies. Andy Greene
