Steve Buscemi loves his gangster role in "Boardway Empire"

From the "funny looking" fella in the Coen Brother's "Fargo" to his role in Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs" Steve Buscemi has played a varied bunch of deviants in his 25-year career and his new role in HBO's "Broadway Empire" is no different.

He said "This is one of the best parts I've ever had in my life…It's unusual to play a character who is ambitious, who has a dark side, and yet there's a lot of humor, as well. It's so much fun to play a role like this. Really, going to work every day has been a pure joy."

It seems that Power comes easily to Buscemi's new character but as he points out himself it's what you do with power that counts. "I suppose he could always step down, but I don't think it's in his DNA," he said.
