Complex loves Steve Buscemi. Like, to the point that it's creepy. Do you have a list of the character actor's best on-screen blinks and twitches written in blood red lipstick in your back pocket in case you ever meet him and have the opportunity to praise him effusively face to face? Admittedly, we're a bit off, but it's a reciprocal relationship, as our obsession stems from the brilliantly creepy characters he's given us (and us alone).

This Sunday night, we strongly (and creepily) recommend you watch the Martin Scorsese-directed pilot episode of Boardwalk Empire, HBO's new period crime drama, in which Buscemi absolutely kills it as Enoch "Nucky" Thompson, the crooked Atlantic City politician/gangster who keeps his town "wetter than a mermaid's twat" trafficking booze during Prohibition. It's too soon to say how Nucky will rank amongst his weirder characters, but in honor of the excellent addition to his filmography, we created a ranking of memorable Buscemi roles, from least to most creepy. We present to you The Steve Buscemi Creep-O-Meter...
