You know that feeling when you rewatch The Godfather I and II and you think, “Damn, Pacino and De Niro were such babes! Just look at how young they were!” Well, you might experience that again with The Irishman; emphasis on might...
In an interview with the British Film Institute, Jodie Foster dropped a few tasty behind-the-scenes morsels about the production process of 1991’s ‘The Silence of the Lambs’ — like the fact that Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Dustin Hoffman were all considered for the role of Hannibal Lecter.
In honor of ‘Glengarry Glen Ross’s 25th anniversary, let's celebrate its staggeringly talented cast by pitting them against each other to see who comes out on top, much as the characters they play do for an hour and forty minutes onscreen.
As it turns out, rumors of Joe Pesci’s involvement in The Irishman have not been greatly exaggerated. Although Pesci’s name has been attached to reports about Martin Scorsese’s mob drama since its inception several years back, recent updates cast some serious doubt on the actor’s involvement. That changed today, as Pesci — along with Bobby Cannavale and Harvey Keitel — has officially joined the cast of The Irishman, which marks his fourth collaboration with Scorsese and Robert De Niro.
