Brian Williams visits Steve Buscemi's 'Boardwalk Empire'

Rock Center

After decades toiling away playing one creepy, odd-ball, murderous character after another, Golden Globe winning actor Steve Buscemi finds himself in a role few could have predicted: leading man Nucky Thompson in HBO’s hit series Boardwalk Empire.  

Brian Williams visits the Brooklyn set of Boardwalk Empire’s 1920s Atlantic City and talks to Buscemi about his looks and getting whacked. 

Buscemi tells Williams, "I was never that conscious of my looks, I don't know why, until I started, you know, reading about my looks. And I was like, 'Is that what I-- do I look like that?'"

Editor's Note: Brian Williams full profile on Buscemi airs Thurs, Sept. 20 at 10pm/9c on NBC's Rock Center with Brian Williams.
