Biden booster Steve Buscemi punched in the face during random NYC attack

"He is OK and appreciates everyone's well wishes," Buscemi's publicist said in a statement.

Steve Buscemi has become one of the latest New Yorkers to be attacked by a stranger while out and about in their own city. 

The 66-year-old actor was punched in the face in broad daylight last week, suffering injuries bad enough to warrant a trip to the hospital. The suspect, who has not yet been identified, is still at large.

According to the New York Post, the incident took place shortly after 11:45 am on Wednesday near 369 Third Avenue in Manhattan's Kips Bay neighborhood. 

Buscemi was walking down the street when suddenly a man came up and hit him. The allegedly unprovoked and random beating left the actor with swelling to his face and left eye.

While the assailant fled the scene, Buscemi was transported to nearby Bellevue Hospital to be treated.

"Steve Buscemi was assaulted in Mid-Town Manhattan," his publicist said in a statement to the Post, lamenting the fact that he was yet "another victim of a random act of violence in the city." 

"He is OK and appreciates everyone's well wishes," the statement continued, "though incredibly sad for everyone that this has happened to him while also walking the streets of New York."

Following the incident, the New York Police Department released an image taken by a security camera of the man suspected of attacking Buscemi. He was fit, with dark skin and gray hair. That day, he wore a blue t-shirt, black pants, and white shoes, sporting a dark blue baseball cap and backpack.

Buscemi in 2020 made a video for The Daily Show endorsing Biden called "Joe Biden: Acceptable under the circumstances," which said that despite Biden's blunders leading up to the election, he would be a better choice than Trump.

Buscemi, a born and raised New Yorker, began his professional career as a firefighter, taking acting classes on the side. He landed his first role in 1985, and since then, has starred in numerous hit films including The Big Lebowski, Fargo, and Reservoir Dogs. In 2012, he appeared on an episode of 30 Rock in which he pretended to be a high school student. The image of him dressed as a teenager along with the now iconic line, "How do you do, fellow kids?" has been immortalized in a popular meme.
