‘Boardwalk Empire’: Steve Buscemi brings the pain in trailer for Martin Scorsese’s new TV show
Image Credit: Craig Blankenhorn I’ve written before on the subject of why Steve Buscemi deserves chunkier parts. And apparently the folks behind the forthcoming HBO show Boardwalk Empire — a brains trust that includes Martin Scorsese and Sopranos scribe Terence Winter — agree. Certainly Buscemi is front and center in the new trailer for the Prohibition-era gangster show in which he plays criminally-minded Atlantic City notable “Nucky” Johnson.
You can check out the clip after the break. I would also recommend that you check out Nelson Johnson’s excellent book Boardwalk Empire: The Birth, High Times, and Corruption of Atlantic City, which inspired the show and really is a humdinger of a read.
