Steve Buscemi reveals the “Grown Ups” moment that broke him: ‘Are you f---ing kidding me!?’

Steve Buscemi reveals the “Grown Ups” moment that broke him: ‘Are you f---ing kidding me!?’

Buscemi was left in the rain in a full-body cast. "I was like, 'I thought we were friends,'" he said.

Grown Ups stars David Spade and Steve Buscemi reunited on the Fly on the Wall podcast, which briefly became a post-work gripe session.

Spade, who hosts the podcast with fellow Saturday Night Live alum Dana Carvey, asked Buscemi about being fitted into a full-body cast for the 2010 movie. It turns out that it wasn't such a great experience for the Boardwalk Empire star. "The whole cast [of actors] was there because it's one of the big scenes, and it started to rain. They got the scene, and then everybody just scatters," Buscemi said.

"I was like, 'I thought we were friends.' Nobody's checking on me," Buscemi continued. "Then I thought I was done and the [assistant director] said, 'Well, I think they want to get a shot where the dog comes up and sniffs your balls.'"

That was a bridge too far for the Fargo actor. "I actually got mad," he said. "I went, 'Are you f---ing kidding me!?'"

In the scene, Buscemi wears a neck brace and full-body cast, with his arms straight up in the air. Fortunately, he revealed on the podcast, those weren't his hands poking out of the cast. Fake hands were used, so he wasn't stuck holding his arms up for hours. Even though he was wet, angry, and trapped in a cast, at least his arms weren't tired.

Buscemi stays behind the camera in his next film as the director of The Listener, starring Tessa Thompson and her real-life dog. The entire film takes place over one night in the home of Beth (Thompson), a crisis helpline operator, as she juggles late-night calls from troubled voices. The actress is the only person to appear on screen, while the voices on the phone belong to Rebecca HallAlia Shawkat, Margaret Cho, Derek Cecil, Blu Del Barrio, Jamie Hector, and Logan Marshall-Green. The Listener premieres in theaters and on digital March 29.
