Joe Pesci has finally agreed to be in Martin Scorsese's new movie 'The Irishman', after being asked by the director a reported '50 times'.
Joe Pesci is reportedly confirmed for Martin Scorsese’s new gangster movie ‘The Irishman’. It'll be the Oscar-winning 'Home Alone' star's first major role since 'Goodfellas'.
Robert De Niro once expressed his desire to punch Donald Trump in the face, so it stands to reason that he would wholeheartedly approve of his old chum Meryl Streep’s message during her Golden Globes speech on Sunday night. In fact, De Niro sent Streep a letter following her withering takedown of the president-elect’s behaviour, as she received the Cecil B. DeMille Award – a gong De Niro himself won in 2011.
There’s a lot to be excited about when it comes to Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese’s long-planned gangster biopic ‘The Irishman’. It’ll be the first time Scorsese and his one-time muse have worked together since ‘Casino’ in 1997 (not counting that ropey advert they made for a Chinese casino last year).
In a video which went viral prior to the US presidential election, Robert De Niro professed a desire to punch Donald Trump in the face. “He’s elected president now, and I think half the country is horrified,” he said, while on the press rounds for his latest movie ‘The Comedian’.
“I mean he is so blatantly stupid,” De Niro said of Trump. Colin Powell [the former US secretary of state under George W. Bush] said it best: he’s a national disaster. Especially since Robert De Niro famously got into such superb shape for his performance as Jake La Motta in ‘Raging Bull’ that he actually fought as a middleweight boxer and won two of his three fights.
Robert De Niro knows a thing or two about insane people. Having expertly portrayed Travis Bickle, Max Cady, and Rupert Pupkin the actor is able to see the signs. “I don’t know, it’s crazy that people that Donald Trump …, he shouldn’t even be where he is, so God help us,” De Niro declared, via Reuters.
