Steve Buscemi Spotted with Black Eye, Swollen Face After Random NYC Attack

Actor Steve Buscemi was spotted with a black eye and bruising on his chin in his first appearance since getting slugged in a random attack in Kips Bay last week.

The 66-year-old “Boardwalk Empire” actor was sporting the injuries from the unprovoked assault while shooting a commercial in Soho on Saturday.

Buscemi could be seen in photos taken over the weekend chatting with crew members along Mott and Prince streets around 5:25 p.m.

It was his first public appearance since the broad-daylight attack on Wednesday, when a deranged brute walked up to the Brooklyn-born actor and slugged him in an unprovoked attack — with his attacker still on the loose, the NYPD told The Post.

“Steve Buscemi was assaulted in Mid-Town Manhattan, another victim of a random act of violence in the city,” the actor’s publicist said in a statement Sunday. “He is OK and appreciates everyone’s well wishes, though incredibly sad for everyone that this has happened while also walking the streets of New York.”

A worker at a building near the scene of the attack said Monday that a surveillance camera captured the shocking incident.

“The guy just came up to him and punched him on the side of the head for no reason,” the man said, describing the incident. “[Buscemi] didn’t see anything. He went straight to the ground and the guy kept going.

“[Buscemi] got right back up with an expression like, ‘What just happened?’ and looked toward the guy who’d hit him,” the worker said. “The guy shouted something back at him and kept going.”

He said the Kips Bay neighborhood “is full of people like this and it’s just getting worse.

“Everybody has to look over their shoulder now,” he added. “And no one with the power to do anything wants to stop what’s going on.”

Buscemi is a beloved Big Apple celebrity, a Brooklyn native who served as a New York City firefighter before launching his big screen career.

Police last week released surveillance photos of his attacker.

Buscemi’s career has spanned decades and includes roles in hit films like “Fargo,” “Reservoir Dogs” and “The Big Lebowski.”

He drew acclaim for his role as crooked Atlantic City pol Enoch “Nucky” Thompson in the hit HBO series “Boardwalk Empire.”

He is the second cast member from the series to be attacked in the city.

On March 31, actor Michael Stuhbarg was jogging on the Upper East Side when a vagrant slammed him with a rock.

    Remember only 1.6% of whites had slaves and they all were democrats! Yet all white people have to see these Fucking cry babies all the time. They can go back to Africa and see what they would do to them. I would bet any of the Africans would give their left nut to be over here.
