Known to most people only as Mr. Pink in "Reservoir Dogs" the strange looking guy in "Fargo" or the infamous hitman Mr. Shhh from "Things to do in Denver when you're dead", Steve Buscemi is in fact one of the best actors of this time. With a face that can be made to look almost ratlike, nerdy or silent and deadly, he is capable of portraying almost any type of character. He is typically cast as a supporting actor, though he's had a few starring roles, for example in Alexandre Rockwell's comedy "In the Soup". Besides "In the soup" he has already played in "Parting Glances" (1986), in which he made a strong impression as Nick, an embittered person with AIDS. Also he had appeared in the unusual suspense thriller "Call Me" (1988), James Ivory's "Slaves of New York" (1989), Martin Scorsese's "Life Lessons" segment of "New York Stories" (1989), Jim Jarmusch's "Mystery Train" (1989), Abel Ferrara's "King of New York" (1990), the Coen brothers' "Miller's Crossing" (1990) and Quentin Tarantino's directorial debut, "Reservoir Dogs" (1992) to name only a few. One of Steve's achievements is "Trees Lounge", a movie he didn't only star in, but also wrote and directed. He could also be seen in "Con Air", an action film in which he plays with Nicolas Cage, Vingh Rhames, John Malkovich, Colm Meany and John Cusack. Also he starred in the newest film by the Coen brothers: "The Big Lebowski". This film also starred Jeff Bridges, John Goodman, John Turturro, Jon Polito and Peter Stormare (yes, the 'other guy' from Fargo) to its cast.
Born in 1958 in Valley Stream, Long Island, Steve
Buscemi gained an interest in theatre while a senior in high school. While
working as a New York fireman for four years, he tried his hand at stand-up
comedy, but eventually gave both up for more dramatic endeavors. He moved
to Manhattan where he studied at the Lee Strasberg Institute, during which
time he wrote and performed various theatric pieces in the downtown New
York area. Eventually, his abilities were noticed by the late Bill Sherwood,
who cast Buscemi as the lead role in his powerful movie, "Parting Glances".
This began Buscemi's career as a brilliant [though sometimes underrated]
indie film actor, a status he still enjoys to this day in spite of his
appearance in a few mainstream pictures.
