Steve Buscemi as Randall in Monsters Inc.
Did you know well-known actor Steve Buscemi was once a firefighter? Well, the surprises don’t stop there. The actor lent his voice as the character of Randall for the Monsters Inc franchise. We did not expect the actor to take part in such a sweet film, especially given his vibe has been more aligned with The Big Lebowski and Fargo, but we loved seeing his big-eyed purple animated counterpart.
How do you pronounce Buscemi?
The Brooklyn native is of Italian descent and joked, “I had to go to Sicily to find out I pronounce my name wrong.” In case you are wondering, it is pronounced Bu-SHE-mi. The actor has appeared in many serious roles that connect to his upbringing in New York and has said of his career, “I don’t think of myself as having a career. I think of having jobs. When I work, I want to have good jobs. I want to do interesting films. I also want to make a living. You don’t always work on the things that you can put your heart into, so it’s good to work on things that you can get into one hundred percent.” It sure seems like all that hard work paid off, the actor boasts a strong $35 million net worth.
