One of my favorite character actors is Steve Buscemi who has appeared in six of the Coen Bros. movies. His favorite review was when he was described as the cinematic equivalent of junkmail. He has played a slew of creeps and psychopaths brilliantly. Buscemi doesn't care as long as they are complicated and going through something he can understand and put across. He also enjoys writing, producing and directing films. It's the challenge of filmwork that sparks his adrenaline just like the days when he was a fireman going into burning buildings.
Commercial work seems to be picking up and the State incentives are about to become law. The new series, The Glades, looks to be very engaging.
