Over the weekend I had the chance to stream Saint. John of Las Vegas on Netflix. It's an 85 minute film about an ex-gambler working for a car insurance company who prides itself on denying "fradulent" claims. Our very own "Donny" (Steve Buscemi) stars as the lead character along with Peter Dinklage (The Station Agent), Sarah Silverman (Mr. Show), and Romany Malco (40 Year Old Virgin). Watching this reminded me of Buscemi's current role on HBO's Boardwalk Empire. It takes place in New Jersey during Prohibition. Buscemi plays Atlantic City's treasurer who tries to become the local booze baron. I don't have HBO, but I'm sure I can find some episodes on Hulu or something.
Here's an article about the show with some thoughts from Donny - http://www.irishcentral.com/ent/Steve-Buscemi-loves-his-gangster-role-in-Boardway-Empire-103132494.html
