In an interview with Jimmy Fallon Thursday, the “Boardwalk Empire”star admitted to being “a nervous wreck” about the hosting gig, which is his second. You can watch Buscemi’s slightly NSFW monologue from a 1998 show here. (Bonus: The video also shows a young Tina Fey with a terrible haircut!)

A little nervousness peeks through in his promos with Andy Samberg and musical guest, the Black Keys. But his bits with Bill Hader — chasing an imaginary turkey, making “Fargo” wood chipper jokes — seem much looser.

Watch Buscemi’s “SNL” promos and his Fallon interview below.
