    The real life figure of Enoch "Nucky" Johnson served as the inspiration for the "Nucky" Thompson. Johnson was a physically commanding man, both tall and heavyset, with a receding hairline. He was quite unlike actor Steve Buscemi and resembled the character of Tony Soprano from The Sopranos. "Boardwalk Empire" creator Terence Winter also wrote for The Sopranos and created the character "Nucky" Thompson with Buscemi in mind, partially to make a central figure differing largely from Tony Soprano.
