The Weirdest Roles Played By Your Favorite TV Actors

Steve Buscemi

Best known for: Nucky Thompson, Boardwalk Empire (HBO)
Weirdest role: Captain of the Guard, Crossbow (1987)

Your boy Bug-Eyed Buscemi was indie before indie was indie. As such, we thought that one of the slew of low budget New York films he made back in the day would be his weirdest project. Though he did appear in a film about a woman haunted by an ancient Chinese manuscript, the short-lived TV series Crossbow is likley the strangest project he ever participated in. As "Captain of the Guard," Buscemi was one of the men standing in the way of the main character, William Tell. It turns out that the last thing that TV audiences wanted was a series about that dude who shot the apple off of his son's head. Who knew?
