* MeanCharacterNiceActor: Steve has been known for a few of these, he is however a nice guy. He was one of the [[http://www.mirror.co.uk/3am/celebrity-news/steve-buscemis-incredible-911-story-8818571 firefighters who rescued the hurt victims during 9/11]]

** [[ZigZaggingTrope Zig-zagged]] in ''Film/ReservoirDogs'', where his character (the wily Mr. Pink) [[spoiler:is the only one to survive]]...only for him to jog straight into a police ambush and get arrested. With two or more dead cops it doesn't look too good for him.
* ItIsPronouncedTroPay: He pronounces his last name "Boo-seh-mee," not "Boo-sheh-mee," as many people seem to think. He says that he doesn't bother correcting people because most people know him by the other pronunciation. He also learned on a trip to Italy that the standard Italian pronunciation is closer to the "incorrect" version.



* LeanAndMean: He's quite cadaverous.



* RealLife/MeanCharacterNiceActor: [[invoked]] 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.
* MoneyDearBoy: [[invoked]] If a job pays well enough, he'll generally do it.
* OlderThanTheyLook: He's pushing 60, 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.
* PlayingAgainstType: [[invoked]]
** ''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 ''Film/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: [[invoked]]
** Buscemi was considered to be cast for the role of [[Franchise/{{Batman}} The Scarecrow]] in the cancelled Franchise/{{Batman}} film, ''Batman Unchained''.
** If Creator/JohnMalkovich hadn't been up for it, the film might have been called ''[[Film/BeingJohnMalkovich Being Steve Buscemi]]'' instead.

* 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 Greek manuscript which he cannot read but which Pembleton, who's been playing thick in accordance with Busceimi's racism, can.
