The Yes Indeed Papers Salute...

Steve Buscemi.

Steve Buscemi is my June pick for the under appreciated actor. This guy has done it all. He's been in action movies, drama, and comedy. He can be the funny guy. He's really good at being the creepy guy. He can also be kind of a bad-ass when he wants to be. Even lend a good voice to an animated movie. Here are some of his more memorable roles.

  • Reservoir Dogs

  • Airheads

  • Billy Madison

  • Desperado

  • Fargo

  • Escape From L.A.

  • Con Air

  • The Wedding Singer

  • The Big Lebowski

  • Armageddon

  • 28 Days

  • Big Daddy

  • Monsters, Inc. (voice)

  • Mr Deeds

  • Big Fish

  • I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry

  • Grown Ups

So I know that's a lot but, like I said, the guy's done it all. And I don't think he gets enough credit. He was the pretty awesome in Reservoir Dogs. He was hilarious in Wedding Singer, Airheads, and Big Daddy. And he was perfect for his role in Fargo. Steve Buscemi deserves much more credit. So from all of us here at The Yes Indeed Papers (and when I say from all of us, I mean just me), Steve Buscemi....we salute you....Yes Indeed!

I agree with you completely, Buscemi has long been one of the actors that if he is in something I plan to see it. What's great about his new show Boardwalk Empire is that he is finally getting some of the credit that he has deserved for years, Scorcese hooked him up. He has won a Golden Globe and 2 SAG awards for his role as Nucky Thompson which couldnt have been more perfectly cast. When he popped up in the Sopranos, again, he added such an unexpected thrill ride that made Sopranos Season 5 still one of my all time favorites, he even directed some episodes for that all time great show as well. What makes him great is his range, he can be so many different emotions and characters with his face and demeanor and that is what makes him so chilling as Nucky Thompson. So finally, Buscemi has gotten some credit not just in the awards he is won, but from you too dude!
