He is known for playing a variety of different roles, from violent mobsters to comedic leads to quirky sidekicks. The pairing became famous enough to inspire a recurring sketch on Saturday Night Live (SNL) called “The Joe Pesci Show”. He had starring roles in several other films including Easy Money (1983), Once Upon a Time in America (1984), Man on Fire (1987), The Super (1991), Jimmy Hollywood (1994), With Honors (also 1994) and Gone Fishin’ (1997). in 1998, he released his second LP (his first album in 30 years) called Vincent LaGuardia Gambini Sings Just for You, which spawned the single “Wise Guy”, a rap tune that played on the gangsta theme by referencing Mafia gangsterism. in 1999, Pesci announced his retirement from acting to pursue a musical career and to enjoy life away from the camera.

Hugo: Martin Scorsese’s Family-Friendly Foray [Video] Here’s the trailer for Hugo, a 3D fantasy/adventure film that will hit theaters this November. Based on Brian Selznick’s children’s novel The Invention of Hugo Cabret and directed by none other than Martin Scorsese, Hugo tells the story of an orphan who lives in the walls of a 1930s Paris train station. A mysterious/magical train station! The movie stars Sacha Baron-Cohen and Ben Kingsley, among others, and while Joe Pesci is conspicuously absent, Hugo still looks to be a Thanksgiving Weekend must-see. [via NYM] More » [link]
