American actor/performance artist Steve Buscemi has made movies whenever the spirit has moved him, or whenever he hasn't been busy working on stage with his regular partner/ collaborators Mark Boone Jr. and Jo Andres (Mrs. Buscemi). In films since 1984, Buscemi first gained attention as the acerbic, AIDs-stricken Nick in Parting Glances (1986). While most of his early films were made for deliberately limited and specialized audiences, Buscemi broke into the mainstream on occasion, notably in New York Stories (1988) -- in which he was characteristically cast as a performance artist -- and Tales From the Darkside: The Movie (1992). Buscemi gained more mainstream exposure for his memorable role of Mr. Pink in Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs (1992).
