Just when Steven Van Zandt thinks he's out, they pull him back in.

Van Zandt, who played mobster Silvio "Sil" Dante on "The Sopranos" is back on the wrong side of the law with "Lilyhammer," a new series premiering on Netflix next month.

The actor, who is also a member of Bruce Springsteen's E Street Band, will play Frank "The Fixer" Tagliano, who enters the witness protection program after ratting out his boss. Tagliano, who is a sports fan, wants to make his new life in Lillehammer, the Norwegian town that hosted the 1994 Winter Olympics. He calls the town "Lilyhammer" and has visions of "a paradise of clean air, fresh white snow and gorgeous broads" that will be the total opposite of his wayward New York criminal lifestyle.

The first eight episodes of the series will be available Feb. 6 on Netflix.
