Classic role in Fargo.

I heard he helped at the Trade Center recovery ops......

"Boardwalk Empire" completed Season One on HBO just a while back. Steve Buscemi has THE role in the series. I was a Sopranos watcher and he had a part in one or two seasons, but I gotta say this new show Boardwalk Empire could end up getting as big as The Sopranos. The Series gives him the opportunity to show just how deeply he can develop and reveal  a character, with all the complexities and nuances. In my opinion, he is an extremely talented actor.

He's funny, scary, serious, nonchalant, intelligent in character; I can imagine working with him might have been a real trip.

I can envision him sitting across on a jump seat doing his schtick. I have no idea what he's like in real person, but if he's actually just playing himself in his roles, like DeNero does, he would keep me laughing my ass off in a fire truck, I'll tell ya what!

Also was big part of the 2003 protest to stop the firehouse closings. I think steve buscemi,and at the time city councilman Bill Deblasio were both arrested.
