Epic! 25 years after its release in 1990, the cast of ‘Goodfellas’ reunited at the Tribeca Film Festival– and there’s photographic proof!
We’re never gonna forget about it. On April 25, a ton of the original cast members of Goodfellas got together again to honor their iconic film. To celebrate the 25th anniversary of what might be Martin Scorsese‘s most iconic movie to date, a screening was held at the 14th Tribeca Film Festival, followed by a panel hosted by Jon Stewart. On hand to celebrate were Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta, Lorraine Bracco and Paul Sorvino— and the world has been blessed with a photo! Check it out inside!
At the Tribeca Film Festival special screening of Goodfellas, a ton of the film’s heavy hitters were on hand to discuss its lasting legacy and importance. Sadly, unable to attend was original star Joe Pesci, who actually won an Oscar in 1991 for his work playing Tommy DeVito.
Robert made sure to give his absent pal a (hilarious) shout out though! “Joe Pesci couldn’t be here, but he sent this email: ‘F—, f—, f—, f—-ity f—, f—‘ ” Robert said as he introduced the screening. “I’ll translate: ‘Dear Bob, sorry I can’t be there. Love to all. Best, Joe.’ “
Martin Scorsese Sends His Regards
Also unable to attend was director Martin, who is busy filming a new film overseas in Taiwan. However, Martin too sent his regards. In a taped message, the acclaimed director explained one very specific way in which the film affected his life.
“Remember that nice Italian restaurant in Tribeca that we used to go to?” Martin asked in a video. “And then when the film came out, the owner of the restaurant said we’re not allowed in anymore because we apparently denigrated a certain ethnic group for the picture?”
Are you glad to see the Goodfellas back together again?
