WDYTYA Season 2 Celebrities - Steve Buscemi

I want to watch this season mainly for Steve Buscemi family history.  See it all started when I became a fan of his new TV show "Boardwalk Empire" on HBO.  I am kind of addicated to that show, to get a little background the show is a period piece set in the 1920's  in Atlantic City right at the start of the Prohibition.   The TV show is based off a book of the same name and it is about the history of Atlantic City

Steve Buscemi plays the character of Nucky Thompson the Treasure of Atlantic City.  I know that he is not Nucky of course, but from a quick look at Wikipedia it says that he has Sicilian and Irish roots.  I love to learn about history, its even better that its from my home state and Steve Buscemi is such a talented actor is some of the reasons I love the show.

I dont know to much about Steve Buscemi besides what I have seen in the movies but he seems like a likeable person and it will be interesting to see how he reacts to finding out about his family history.

I have a little Irish ancestry but I have not been able to do much research past the fact that they are from ireland.  I need to start hitting the books on this one.  Maybe with watching the episode they will give me some ideas of what sources are available to me.
