Steve Buscemi was born in Brooklyn, New York (1957). His father was a worker, and his mother was the owner of the restaurant. From 1980 to 1984, Buscemi worked as a firefighter in the New York City Fire Department (NYFD).
He began playing in the mid-1980s, especially in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs (1992). Buscemi has a long and successful career as a famous actor, director, dub, performer and television producer (for example, Soprano, Empire of the Boardwalks) and cinema: Big Lebowski, Pulp Fiction , Miller's Transition ”, Reservoir Dogs , Armageddon).
When the world was stunned by the horrific attacks of September 11th, Buscemi quickly put on his old fireman's costume and went to the Twin Towers site. Together with his Engine Company brothers 55, Buscemi worked in shift work for 12 days, looking for wreckage for the survivors. He did this anonymously, and his actions were discovered only ten years after the publication on Facebook of one of his former firefighter comrades. Buscemi still lives in Brooklyn, New York.
