Happy 80th Birthday To Our Beloved American Icon Joe Pesci
Do we do birthday blogs around here? I'm not sure if we even do, but hey when someone as important as Joe goddamn Pesci is in many of our lives hits the big 8-0 you bet your bottom I'm gonna do a tiny little write-up about the legend himself. 80 is no small feat! I could go on and on and on about how iconic Mr. Pesci though he's so in the upper echelon of actors/quotes/etc nothing I can say can even do him justice so I will just leave you with a few of my favorite things he's done.
The obvious first one. Probably one of the most tense/funniest/perfect movie scene ever.
This whole argument is also Mr. Pesci at his best. This could be a big fuckin' score here!
I've never particularly been a massive Home Alone fan, yet I'm happy to play the hits.
You put Scorsese doing a movie with Deniro, Rickles, Stone, and many Pesci angry moments? We'll tune into that.
And finally I'll leave you with a HILARIOUS story from the great Jim Breuer about Joe Pesci responding to his Joe Pesci Show skit on SNL. Well worth the length of the story. Amazing.
Happy 80th Joe!
