    Hes one of my favorite supporting actors, Steve Buscemi. Id have to say my favorite films hes been in is Fargo,which in my opinion is one of the best films of all time. Although hes been in many more great pieces.Just wondering peoples favorite Buscemi role and film.
    I also liked his small Buddy Holly role as well in PF.

    Buscemi was great in Ghost World.
    I also liked him as Donny in The Big Lebowski, a change of pace to his high strung "Mr. Pink" characters.

    It's hard to pick as Buscemi rarely takes bad roles, he was even memorable in Con Air, although maybe less so in Armeggeddon. I would say Trees Lounge would be my fav, with Fargo coming next

    Although I like other movies he's been in better than this one, my favorite performance of his is in Ghost World. I felt that his character in that movie was a lot more 3 dimensional than the usual supporting roles he gets to play. Fargo comes in a close second.

    My favorite Buscemi role was in Living in Oblivion. Mainly because he had the lead part and it was hilarious seeing him flip out. Great stuff.

    "Parting Glances". At the tender age of 17, I mustered the courage to venture out to a gay film festival and saw this pic. As a young, closeted gay boy, it was inspirational to see a gay character that was kinda hip and cool. I finally saw someone that I could relate to- not the standard gay stereotype but someone who had a dry, nonchalant wit and offbeat interests. I don't know- he just seemes REAL. I saw that being gay didn't have to mean that I had to act any certain way. I could just be myself.
