Steve Buscemi Biography
Steve Buscemi (born December 13, 1957 in Brooklyn, New York) is an American film and stage character actor, and also a former New York City firefighter. His first lead role was opposite Richard Ganoug in Parting Glances (1986). He is an associate member of the experimental theater company The Wooster Group.

Buscemi's memorable roles include Mr. Pink in Reservoir Dogs, Rockhound in Armageddon, and Donny in The Big Lebowski. Although usually a supporting actor, he has had critical success as a lead actor, particularly his role as Seymour in Ghost World.

The characters that Steve Buscemi chooses to play are generally neurotic and paranoid. Quentin Tarantino uses Buscemi (sometimes uncredited) in nearly all his movies. He also occasionally appears in films by the Coen Brothers.

In 2004, Buscemi joined the cast of The Sopranos as Tony Soprano's cousin and childhood friend, Tony Blundetto. He had previously been involved in the series, as he directed a popular episode of the HBO series several years ago. Buscemi also wrote, directed, and starred in the film Trees Lounge in 1996.
