Currently Buscemi is starring in the HBO drama Boardwalk Empire, and can be seen next in the film On The Road directed by Walter Salles.

Buscemi has also worked as a writer and director, with film directing credits including Trees Lounge, Animal Factory, Lonesome Jim, and Interview. In addition, he is an Emmy nominated television director for his work on The Sopranos, and has recently helmed episodes of 30 Rock and Nurse Jackie.

Buscemi also started a New York based production company in 2008, called Olive Productions, with Stanley Tucci and producer Wren Arthur. Olive has a diverse slate of film and television projects, many of which have been developed for Steve and Stanley to direct.
