What's Joe Pesci doing lately?

I watched 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag last night and realized that I hadn't seen Joe Pesci in a new movie for a while and sure enough it seems that 1998's Lethal Weapon 4 was his last movie. Did he retire???

"In all fairness, I should explain to you what I do. If you don't have my money for me, I'll crack your ****ing head in front of everyone in the bank. And just about the time I get out of jail, hopefully, you'll be coming out of your coma. But guess what? I'll crack your ****ing head again! 'Cause I'm ****ing stupid! I don't give a **** about jail! That's my business. That's what I do."




SEriously, though I hadn't thought about it, but you're right. He hasn't done a film since Lethal Weapon 4, nor does he seem to have anything in the works. I don't think he's retired, but five years without a film is strange.

Who needs to act when one can do the Joe Pesci show?

They made a third and a fourth. The fourth only recently aired and was horrible. That annoying guy from Third Rock played the villian that Kevin defeats this time.

Have you listened to "Vincent Laguardia Gambini Sings Just For You?" It has some funny stuff on it. Not great but worth downloading for a laugh.


Vincent Laguardia Gambini Sings Just For You, an album recorded by Pesci in the voice of the character he played in the 1992 film My Cousin Vinny. The parental-advisory sticker is no joke; Pesci/Gambini has a foul mouth, and he's not afraid to use it on songs like "Take Your Love And Shove It" and an arrangement of "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," a profanity-laced duet with Vinny co-star Marisa Tomei. Pesci is a competent enough lounge singer (this isn't his first excursion into the territory), but here the shtick is too thick. Diehard Vinny-heads will be delighted, of course, but it's doubtful that even those who lobby Fox for a My Cousin Vinny sequel, contribute to the My Cousin Vinny fan fiction websites, and gather for My Cousin Vinny conventions will enjoy the hip-hop-tinged "Wise Guy." A collection of mob clichés, the song uses Blondie's "Rapture" as its source, a choice that would probably even shame Puff Daddy.
