"So many US indie movies of reputation are haunted by the nervy presence of Steve Buscemi it's hard to imagine a successful one without him." -- Philip Kemp, Sight & Sound Magazine.
Several different journalists have dubbed Steve Buscemi (b-oo-seh-mee) 'King of the Indies', and there's no doubt that he's earned his crown. At age 46, he has carved out a place for himself in film-making history as one of the most prolific and eclectic forces in the independent (as well as mainstream) filmmaking communities. With an impressive 89 movies and 16 television performances under his belt over the course of his 19 year career, Steve not only impresses as an actor, but as a writer/director as well. Seemingly as comfortable behind the camera as in front, he continues to develop himself as a director with films such as Trees Lounge, Animal Factory and several projects for HBO including an acclaimed episode of The Sopranos and the pilot for Baseball Wives.
As an actor, Buscemi is often cast as the weasel, con, thug or occasional serial killer. In reality, he is well-liked and respected by his peers, often appearing in multiple projects with the same actors and directors. He is a loyal friend and family man, husband of Jo Andres, father of Lucian. He is a philanthropist, supporter of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), The Elisabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation and many firefighter relief funds. A former New York City firefighter himself from 1980-1984, Steve donned his old turnout gear to work at Ground Zero among his grieving and fallen brothers following the 9/11/01 World Trade Center attack.
Finally, Steve is more than the sum of his many talents. He is a person with an undeniable charisma, a tireless work ethic and an admirable set of values.
I am sure that if you came to this site as a fan, as you peruse its contents and learn more about Steve, his career, his interests and his aspirations, your esteem and appreciation can only grow.
