* ItIsPronouncedTroPay: His last name is pronounced "Boo-seh-mi," not "Boo-she-mi," as many people seem to think. He finds the mispronunciation annoying. The latter pronunciation is nonetheless technically correct, as Buscemi has commented "I had to go to Sicily to find out I pronounce my name wrong".

* OlderThanTheyLook: He's in his 50s now, but still looks like he's in his 40s. In ''Film/{{Airheads}}'', [[DawsonCasting he was 36 when he played the 20-something]] metalhead Rex, and was more convincing than actual (then-)20-something costars Creator/BrendanFraser and Creator/AdamSandler.

* SmallNameBigEgo: Many of his characters, but ''Film/{{Fargo}}'''s Carl Showalter stands out. ''Armageddon'' finally let him play a character who really was as smart as he thought he was. Best shown in an episode of ''Series/HomicideLifeOnTheStreet'' where his character is a pretentious longshoreman with delusions of genius who talks down to the detectives whom he views as inferior. They bring in his copy of a Latin manuscript which he cannot read but which Pembleton can.

* MoneyDearBoy: If a job pays well enough, he'll generally do it.
* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: Despite playing immoral/amoral weasels, he has been described as a consummate professional whom everyone likes. A former fire-fighter, he immediately went to his old firehouse and helped look for survivors of the 9/11 attacks.



* PlayingAgainstType:
** ''Series/BoardwalkEmpire'', as noted above. Enoch Thompson is a powerful, charming [[TheDon Don]], leading a successful career as a charismatic politician and powerbroker, a commanding gangster, and all-around king of Atlantic City.
** Donny in ''Film/TheBigLebowski'', a nice, upbeat, naive guy who's never allowed to speak for more than a second. The last part was done as a nod to the fact the his character in ''Film/{{Fargo}}'' wouldn't shut up.
** An earlier example is ''InTheSoup'' in which his character is a struggling but Sweet Film Director with an unrequited crush on Jennifer Beals' character
** His character in the ''Series/TalesFromTheCrypt'' episode "Forever Ambergris" is a nice (if naive) fellow. Among other things, he's, a gifted photographer who either doesn't notice how gifted he is or just doesn't let it go to his head.
** In the German biopic ''John Rabe'', he plays a heroic American doctor.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** Buscemi was considered to be cast for the role of [[Franchise/{{Batman}} The Scarecrow]] in the cancelled Franchise/{{Batman}} film, ''Batman Triumphant''.
** If Creator/JohnMalkovich hadn't been up for it, the film might have been called ''[[Film/BeingJohnMalkovich Being Steve Buscemi]]'' instead.
