Things are looking pretty good for 'American Hustle' director David O. Russell, who has spent the past five years reinventing himself. The man who was once known more for being a pain in the ass on the set of 'I Heart Huckabees' and getting in a fistfight with George Clooney while shooting 'Three Kings' has emerged as the modern master of the crowd-pleaser, crafting straightforward entertainments that make big bucks at the box office and get a bunch of Oscar attention. That's the kind of combination that keeps you making movies and convinces every actor in Hollywood to get in line to work with you. And that's probably why Robert De Niro is in talks to join the cast of 'Joy,' which will be his third collaboration with Russell in three years.

Mr. DeNiro, there are other hobbies.
It's great that you like to keep busy, really. But gobbling film roles and saying “yes” to every single offer that comes to your door as if terrified there will never be another opportunity to go before the camera...this is no way to live. You were great once. You have occasional flashes of greatness still. I know opportunities dry up for older actors, but you must be selective.

It's not every day that an actor of John Goodman's caliber hosts 'SNL,' but whatever the odds, it's not nearly as uncommon as him being joined by Sylvester Stallone and Robert De Niro for a holiday-themed sketch that sees the three silver screen icons re-imagined as tough-talking guys on the way to visit the baby Jesus. Yep, it's beginning to look a lot like Christmas ...

Five years after 'Goodfellas,' Martin Scorsese collaborated with screenwriter and author Nicholas Pileggi once again on 'Casino,' the story of Sam "Ace" Rothstein (frequent Scorsese star Robert De Niro), a Jewish-American gambling handicapper who is used by the mob to oversee their casino operations in Las Vegas. Based in part on a true story, 'Casino' marks the eighth and final collaboration between De Niro and Scorsese, and went on to earn co-star Sharon Stone a Best Supporting Actress Oscar nomination. Eighteen years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see where they are now.

Based on the true story of the notorious Lucchese crime family and their associate, Henry Hill, Martin Scorsese's 'Goodfellas' follows the blue-collar Hill (Ray Liotta) as he tries to work his way up the ranks of the Italian-American mob in his New York neighborhood. Featuring a cast that includes Robert De Niro and several future stars of 'The Sopranos,' the film hit theaters in 1990 and received rave reviews for its depiction of organized crime. Twenty-three years later, we revisit the cast of the film and see what they're up to now.

When 'The Intern' was first announced last year, the latest film from writer-director Nancy Meyers was set to star Tina Fey in the lead role. But it seems Fey has dropped out and Reese Witherspoon will take her place (even though we all know no one could ever really replace Tina Fey). Joining Witherspoon in the upcoming film is Robert De Niro, who's been really into comedies lately.

Among the scope of the tragedy that was 'Sopranos' star James Gandolfini's passing in recent months, we had to wonder what would become of Gandolfini's HBO series 'Criminal Justice.' Now, it seems HBO has swapped one legendary Hollywood mobster for another, as Robert De Niro will step in to fill the role first occupied by James Gandolfini to get 'Criminal Justice' on to television.

Since Robert De Niro has been spoofing his mafia roles and tough guy image for more than a decade now, it shouldn't be surprising he's goofing on another of his signature roles (this time Jake La Motta) for a new comedy. In 'Grudge Match' he plays an over-the-hill boxer who returns to the ring to fight one of his toughest opponents, with Sylvester Stallone (playing on his Rocky Balboa character) as his rival.
