HOLLYWOOD – IT star Bill Skarsgard signs on to play Steve Buscemi in the biopic Young Buscemi.
After frightening folks as Pennywise, Bill Skarsgard is to pay actor Steve Buscemi in a new film documenting the early career of the Reservoir Dogs star. Skarsgard spoke to the Studio Exec about the role:
I’ve always been a huge fan of Steve’s work especially the stuff he did with the Coen Brothers. Our film will really meet Steve before he became Buscemi. In fact, the working title was Becoming Buscemi for a while.
We meet him in New York, struggling to catch a break. Then he gets a role in Tales from the Darkside. It’s all about how he prepares for the role and what his new found fame does to his life.
Do you cover his role in The Rock?
