You really are a funny guy, Joe Pesci.
Remembered how we told you about how Martin Scorsese was gonna make the ultimate mob movie with Robert De Niro, Al Pacino and Joe Pesci?
Well, it looks like Pesci is telling Scorsese to go home and get his f*cking shine box.
Yes, it seems that the actor doesn't want anything to do with Scorsese's film, The Irishman, which is based off "I Heard You Paint Houses", a novel about Frank Sheerans life, his involvement with organized crime and one of the greatest mysteries in American history: Jimmy Hoffa.
Although his movies mainly deal with death, betrayal and overall terribleness in human nature, Scorsese, ever the optimist, still thinks Pesci can be convinced to take part in this movie (hopefully through words and not a visit by some guys in suits).
Granted, Pesci declared his retirement from acting in 1999, but, the actor has popped in movies here and there and his last film was 2010's Love Ranch which was decidedly awful.
So, if he can do that terrible movie why not do a possibly amazing one with someone that he has collaborated with in the past? He's already done three amazing films with Scorsese and De Niro.
Pesci is also passing up the opportunity to work with Al Pacino who has never been in a Scorsese picture.
Joe, from the bottom of our hearts. We would love to see you in this movie. If not, you better do another Home Alone so we can watch you get hysterically battered by a kid.[via New York Daily News] [Feature Image Courtesy Instagram]
