Assistant to Ray Romano?

No I'm just doing background acting work.

Yep, as Pesci's character's cousin who was a mob lawyer.

Pesci's sort of looking like George Romero these days.

 

Kind of amazed this is finally happening. It seems like this, like Silence, has been vapourware for half my life. It'll be odd living in a world where you can actually watch them both.

pesci reminds me of my aunt...

So excited about this.

Pesci is a national treasure and I’m happy Marty got him out of retirement for one last picture, but man everyone looks so damn old frown.gif

It's amazing to see Pesci back on a Scorsese set.  And I believe Keitel's back in the fold, too.  Should be great to see the old Scorsese crew back in action.

 

Plus Pacino!

post #14 of 39
Weird that Pesci is playing mob boss Russell Bufalino and Pacino is Jimmy Hoffa, thought they'd be the other way around. And while I appreciate another De Niro - Scorsese collaboration, Bobby looks nothing like Frank Sheeran. And Russell Crowe is right. there. Hope they can pull off the de-aging FX as well as the recent Marvel films have.
post #15 of 39

I just hope Scorcese can finally pull both De Niro and Pacino out of the ennui they've both been in over recent years. It's criminal that two of our greatest living actors have been slumming it as they have. De Niro especially. 

 

But YAY! PESCI! 

post #16 of 39

has Pacino ever worked with Pesci before?

 

or is my mind just completely blanking on an obvious answer?

post #17 of 39
No.

Isn't Pacino really active with live stage work?

post #20 of 39
More than anything, I'm just happy that Pacino is working with Scorsese. It sort of closes this loop of cinematic history that I think needed to be closed if it was ever going to feel right. Both of them are up there with only so much time on the clock and any cineaste worth their salt probably felt this need for completion in terms of their respective careers.
post #21 of 39

I'm still kinda baffled and "looking forward" to how this film is going to apply the de-aging FX on these guys...

I thought the de-aging thing was a terrible idea before I saw Ant Man and Guardians 2. But still, those films were able to sustain the illusion for a few minutes, no idea if they can do that for an entire film.

Marvel CGI and Netflix CGI are two very different things.

What's interesting is how well this ties into how Scorsese has described the film being about aging and looking back. Much like Marty & the gang re-uniting for one last gangster epic.

Okja had good CG!

 

Netflick has good CG factories!!!

 

oh man, I wonder if they're getting LOLA FX to work overtime on this with the production's reported $125 million budget.

 

jesus...

post #26 of 39
Marty completing his gangster trilogy is why I anticipate this one so much plus it's basically his Expendables, getting all the best players together.
post #27 of 39

His trilogy was Mean Streets/Goodfellas/Casino.  This is his aging stars trying to stay relevant phase.  Though Scorsese does it better than most.

post #28 of 39

On the LOLA FX de-age thing: is that tech dependent on having a ton of archive reference footage of the person? Like you can only do that to someone who's had a long career in film (ie. has lots of available footage), but you can't do it to a genius theatre actor/actress who hasn't appeared in films or TV?

These guys are in their mid 70s. Pesci hasn't appeared in a movie since Obama's first term and DeNiro hasn't given a fuck in over a decade. Same for Ray Romano. I don't see where this is coming from at all, aside from maybe Pacino. But would wouldn't say yes to a role in a $125 mil Scorsese gangster movie?

It's mostly a joke, based on aging stars like Arnold and Sly trying to relive former glory by going back to the well.  Don't take it too seriously.

It's essential Scorsese, like Taxi Driver, so you should probably remedy that.

post #33 of 39

More than anything I'm just really happy to see Pesci one more time.

I don't think it's dependent on having a ton, but I have no doubt that it's incredibly helpful.

 

And I imagine it wouldn't really be done for someone who isn't iconic to begin with.

 

If it was a situation in which you'd have to de-age someone who the public wasn't really aware of, they'd just cast a younger actor for specific ages.  Either that, or try to go the wiggly-scot direction and cover a younger actor in tons of fake-looking old age prosthetics!

post #35 of 39

I was thinking of a situation where you have an established / iconic actor who's really made it at older age, like Mark Rylance.

post #36 of 39

Ah. 

 

Yeah, I think it's still possible even if there isn't a backlog of existing movie footage of Rylance.

 

 

Or they can just refer to THIS!

I'm sure you can also source personal photos and videos.

Is Mark Rylance in this too?

I've understood you need high resolution live footage of the actor's face to reference all the expressions and skin movement.

And Mark Rylance should play Frank 'the Irishman' Sheeran in this. Such beautiful eyes...
