Steve Buscemi has appeared as Christian Grey in a 'Fifty Shades of Grey' parody.
The 57-year-old star - who's previously appeared in 'Boardwalk Empire' and 'Reservoir Dogs' - replaces Northern Irish star Jamie Dornan with a host of characters from his past, including Carl Showalter from 'Fargo', Nucky Thompson from 'Boardwalk Empire', and even Crazy Eyes from 'Mr Deeds'.
In the clip by Boo Ya Pictures, it's not initially apparent that it's Buscemi in the role, as he talks with Anastasia Steele, played by Dakota Johnson, while Beyonce's 'Crazy In Love' can be heard in the background.
Buscemi's face is unseen for the first phase of the scene, and Johnson asks: "Do you have any interests outside of work?"
Buscemi replies by referencing a scene from 'Reservoir Dogs': "When I order coffee I want it filled six times. And you?"
She then says: "There's really not much to know about me. Look at me."
Buscemi - who appears in the role of Nucky Thompson - responds: "You can bet your keyster I'm gonna get a piece of that pie."
The real 'Fifty Shades of Grey', based on the 2011 erotic romance novel by British author E. L. James, is set to open in cinemas on Valentine's Day (14.02.15).
