Obviously Brad Pitt and Robert Pattinson are mere afterthoughts to the pure rugged good looks of Steve Buscemi - and that is why I am dedicating today's post to my Top 5 Steve Buscemi performances.
1 - Reservoir Dogs
2 - The Big Lebowski
3 - Con Air
4 - Armageddon
5 - Billy Madison
I can't think of a single movie that Steve Buscemi couldn't have made even more awesome. He is like the bacon of Hollywood. Have a boring movie and need to spice it up? Buscemi Bits!
Case in point - Armageddon. I have no business liking this movie - then you throw in some Steve Buscemi and a cheesy Aerosmith song and now I'm stuck on my couch for 3 hours.
I have to imagine the guy who directed Armageddon was in the theater watching it after it came out and was like -
"Man - there aren't nearly enough Liv Tyler shots in this movie.
And it is getting pretty cheesy - Ben Affleck might have been a horrible decision.
Wait...what's this? STEVE BUSCEMI!
Man, I'm glad I called THAT guy*!"
(*For those counting that is my third Billy Madison reference in the last week - it isn't even for fun anymore - it is a legitimate problem. Do they make a patch for this? I can quit anytime I want...I swear...I just don't want to...'He called the shit poop' ...ahhhhhhhh!)
