    Steve Buscemi used to be a firefighter?

    I came across this tonight, and thought it was really, really neat.

    As a young man in the early 1980s, Buscemi worked as an FDNY firefighter with Engine 55 in Little Italy. After spending four years putting out blazes, Buschemi switched gears and turned to acting.

    But when the terrorist attacks of September 11 happened, killing closes to 3,000 people - among them 343 firefighters - Buscemi spontaneously rejoined his old fire company as they went to work cleaning up Ground Zero.
    Now, he's made a documentary about the FDNY.

    I've always liked Buscemi as an actor. It's nice to find out he's a really good guy, too.
