He previously collaborated with "The Island” director Michael Bay in "Armageddon,” and has also been seen in such action hits as "Spy Kids 2: Island of Lost Dreams” and "Spy Kids 3-D: Game Over,” both for director Robert Rodriguez; the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced "Con Air”; and John Carpenter's "Escape from L.A.” Additionally, he has earned acclaim for his work in a number of independent features, including his Independent Spirit Award-winning performance as Mr. Pink in Quentin Tarantino's "Reservoir Dogs”; Jim Jarmusch's "Mystery Train,” for which he earned another Spirit Award nomination; Tim Burton's "Big Fish”; the Coen brothers' "Fargo”; Tarantino's "Pulp Fiction”; Tom DiCillo's "Living in Oblivion”; and Alexandre Rockwell's "In the Soup,” to name only a few.

Behind the camera, Buscemi has earned recognition for his work as a writer and director. His first project was a short film entitled "What Happened to Pete,” which was featured at several film festivals, including Rotterdam and Locarno, and aired on the Bravo Network. He made his feature film directorial debut with "Trees Lounge,” which he also wrote and starred in. The film premiered in the Directors' Fortnight at the 1996 Cannes Film Festival and brought Buscemi two Independent Spirit Award nominations for Best First Feature and Best First Screenplay. His second feature film as a director was "Animal Factory,” based on a book by Edward Bunker, which premiered at the 2000 Sundance Film Festival. He most recently directed "Lonesome Jim,” which debuted at the 2005 Sundance Film Festival.
