Jeremy Allen White, the man known for playing Chicago’s greatest chef is not the new face of Willy Wonka but he is the new face of Bruce Springsteen. The Bear star has been cast as the rock-and-roll maestro in 20th Century Studios’ new film based on the non-fiction book Deliver Me From Nowhere: The Making of Bruce Springsteen’s Nebraska.

David Greenbaum looks to be wasting no time since being appointed head of Disney’s live-action film division and 20th Century Studios. He nabbed the rights to Deliver Me From Nowhere, which the latter will produce and distribute.
