Steve Buscemi on Parting Glances

Steve Buscemi
I wonder how many people know that Steve Buscemi started out playing a gay guy with aids in the movie Parting Glances?

There apparently is a newly restored of Parting Glances by Outfest in conjunction with the UCLA Film and Television Archive.

Bill Sherwood’s 1986 Parting Glances, one of the best American movies ever made about the disease. Not that Sherwood, who died of AIDS-related complications in 1990 at the age of 38, would have appreciated the label. More a waspishly funny portrait of the hip downtown Manhattan arts scene of the early 1980s than a disease movie, the defiantly unapologetic drama turns on the ambivalent but enduring bond between two former gay lovers — one of them a punk rocker trying to continue his work while dying of AIDS, played by a then-unknown standup performer and firefighter named Steve Buscemi.
