Steve Buscemi

Biography

Date of Birth 13 December 1957, Brooklyn, New York, USA Height 5' 9" (1.75 m) Buscemi was born in Brooklyn, New York to John Buscemi (an Italian American Korean War veteran) and an Irish American mother. Steve graduated from Valley Stream Central High School, where he wrestled in the varsity squad at 125 lbs, in 1975. He then attended Nassau Community College before moving to Manhattan to attend the Lee Strasberg Institute. He was a New York City firefighter at Engine Company #55 in Little Italy from 1980 to 1984. The day after the attack on the World Trade Center on 9/11, Buscemi showed up at his old firehouse and volunteered to work at Ground Zero. For the next week he worked 12 hour shifts digging through the rubble in an effort to recover bodies, all the while refusing to do interviews or have his picture taken. Buscemi is an associate member of the experimental theater company The Wooster Group. Buscemi's memorable roles include Mr. Pink in Reservoir Dogs, Garland Greene in Con Air, Rockhound in Armageddon, Donny in The Big Lebowski and Carl Showalter in Fargo. Although usually a supporting actor, he has had critical success as a lead actor, particularly his role as Seymour in Ghost World. Buscemi normally plays characters that are neurotic and paranoid. He often appears in films by the Coen Brothers, wherein he often dies in a grisly, prolonged or unexpected manner. In 2003, Buscemi made a brief celebrity guest appearance as himself on the long-running FOX animated television show The Simpsons in the episode Brake My Wife, Please. In 2004, Buscemi joined the cast of The Sopranos as Tony Soprano's cousin and childhood friend, Tony Blundetto. Buscemi had previously been involved with the show, directing the third season episode "Pine Barrens", which is a fan favorite. He recently appeared in the third episode of Season 6, as a doorman at heaven (portrayed as a country club) in a dream of Tony Soprano's. He also returned as a director to the show, directing the fifth episode of Season 6. Buscemi also had a memorable role as Phil Hickle, Ellen's father and older Pete's guidance conselor in The Adventures of Pete and Pete.
