Reports indicate Scorsese still had to ask Pesci something like 50 times to be in The Irishman before the actor finally said yes.
The Irishman is, after all, total Goodfellas territory—the synopsis says it’s about a “mob hit man” remembering “his possible involvement with the slaying of Jimmy Hoffa.”
A Teaser came out promoting the actors coming:
Pesci will reportedly play a “mob boss” from Pennsylvania named Russell Buffalino, who was allegedly a key player in Hoffa’s infamous—and still unsolved—disappearance.
Love this clip from the Goodfellas
