One of the most prolific actors of his generation (in addition to being a writer and director), Steve Buscemi has earned over 40 entertainment industry nominations and awards, and recently won both the Golden Globe and SAG Award for Best Actor for his performance in "Boardwalk Empire." Steve was born in Brooklyn, but spent most of his childhood on Long Island. In his 30s he returned to Brooklyn, where he now lives with his wife and son. He's embarking on a journey into his ancestral past in hopes of finding really interesting characters with compelling stories. The first stop is his parents' home in Valley Stream, Long Island, to ask his mother anything she knows about her side of the family - the side he knows least about. Steve's maternal grandmother Amanda Van Dine committed suicide when his mother was three, and his family doesn't talk much about this painful subject.
