ROBERT DE NIRO LEAVES THE FOCKERS TO RETURN TO THE MOBSTERS


After far too many “Meet The Parents” and “Focker” movies, it looks like Robert De Niro is set to redeem himself in a mob film directed by his buddy Martin Scorsese. Scorsese, who has been favoring Leonardo DiCaprio as his leading man, is directing a script based on the book “I Heard You Paint Houses.” (“Paint houses” is mob slang for contract killings.) The movie is called “The Irishman” and it’s about Frank Sheeran, a labor union official who became a mobster responsible for 25 killings – including Jimmy Hoffa. The real Sheeran confessed this to the book’s author before he died. How Bobby will prepare for this role is not known but you may recall he drove a cab before he filmed “Taxi Driver.”

    I love the Focker/Parents movies they make me laugh out loud…they are comedies and not supposed to be Shakespeare!

    It can only be good news, right? Can’t STAND Ben Stiller. His goofy face and monkey ears ruins every movie he’s in. I finally watched Tropic Thunder the other night because it was rated highly and had Robert Downey Jr. in it (with high praise). Stiller was beyond distractingly goofy and moronic and ruined the whole thing for me. To me, he just can’t play anything but his goofy self. ICK!

    De Niro has always been an interesting actor and at least hasn’t turned into an old lady like Al Pacino (have you SEEN his HAIR lately?). Pacino is short, dumpy, balding, and apparently has never met a black outfit he didn’t want to wear. BORING!

    Yeah Bobby! Can’t WAIT! SCARE ME! (Don’t bring the fluffy cat).

    This is so COOL Janet!!

    Where do you get this stuff.
    Nice to see celebrities as they were(average Joe’s) before they hit the Big Time.

    Reta, boy do I agree with you on this one.

    Can’t stand Ben Stiller; anything he is in always looks like it’s a play. He is fugly and untalented.

    Reta and Indy, have you seen the online gossip stories about how Ben and his wife suffer from a serious eating disorder? The count their almonds and have regular colonics. I always found Stiller mildly irritating, but now….

    Sebastian, no I’d never heard that about ANYBODY…are YOU playing with YOUR “almonds?”

    Funny, I’ve never considered bonding with anyone while having double colonics…maybe strom and Patrick will elaborate for our entertainment…

    Isn’t Strom, Gerard? Or is that Sebastion?
    You have never heard racist or feminist crap from me.
    Ever.
    Deniro has done shit since Casino. This should be good,

    Feminist?! Meant homophobic. My borderline downs kicked in.

    Reta, not sure if they actually have them at the same time.

    Stiller and his wife, Christine Taylor are crazy calorie counters. Do a google search for gossip regarding, and you will see. It explains their wasting forms — Christine is not fine-boned and looks terrible now (having lost so much weight), and Ben just looks more and more like an elf.

    How convenient, Frank Sheeran supposedly confessed to the books author, doubtful. They have dug for Hoffa everywhere except the White House lawn. Which is probably where he is actually buried.

    “regular colonics” explains a lot about Ben Stiller. Love his real life and “Focker” parents though. I enjoy those movies for the mindless entertainment, but it will be good to see DeNiro in a Scorcese film.

    Patrick, No, strom is you, Seastian is Sebastian, and Gerard Vandenburg is Captain America is wim, but I did notice a brand new name the other day that I’m sure is him. Dead giveaway, but he’s too stupid to know it.

    BTW…if you are NOT strom I apologize profusely for painting you with the moron brush, but you have to admit, you DO put on quite a “stromish” show on a regular basis. If you don’t want people to misidentify you you might want to take a second look at your previous posts compared to “his” because several of us have come to the same conclusion.

    PS: stop hiding behind this so-called “borderline downs” crap. It is a genetic disorder where the person is missing a chromasome. You either have it or you don’t. Some people might be mildly affected while others are severely mentally delayed. But as you put it “Borderline Downs” you have to be pretty stupid to say that because there IS no such thing. Do you bag groceries at the supermarket or make friendship bracelets? Yeah, good luck with that.

    Reta, Borderline Downs is a joke of course, and no slur against those poor people is intended. My coworkers throw that at me in all kidding.
    I have been too busy for a couple of years and have only recently returned to Janets in the last week. No, I wasn’t in jail Janet LOL! I am no one else! Strom’s profile is as a racist fucker. I am not. Strom’s posts are also intentionally inarticulate. HE OR “SHE” MAY POST AS SOMEONE ELSE AS WELL. I have not kept up to speed with the evolving dynamics on this site although there are many familiar posters.
    My M.O. is just to have fun and be silly.

    “mentally delayed”?…please…… i loathe that ‘politically correct’ term…..and any ‘politically correct’ term when it comes to politically correct terms about those kinda sorta humans…..

    EVERYONE i have met and know (including my own bad s-elf) is ‘mentally delayed’ in one way or another. sometimes 5 or 9 ways even. and trust me they have every chromosome they are supposed to…..
    mentally delayed…..GAH. there are plenty of things you can refer to as being Delayed…..a train, a plane, a bus, your dinner, a check, your period, mail, the correct and final tally of votes, that pat on the back you so richly deserve…..the fairness sanity & Integrity of ANYONE in political office…..
    MENTAL CAPACITY is NOT one of them…..delay implies that eventually the shit will show up…. with the Mentals you either gots it or you ain’t gots it….

    Love Robert De Niro, I agree with you guys about Ben Stiller. Damn, his mom and dad are funny as hell, but he sucks.

    Jerry Stiller is hilarious — his rolling from playing Frank Costanza in Seinfeld to Arthur in King of Queens has guaranteed him a huge spot in pop culture history. Ann Meara seems to have worked less, but is no less iconic — I still remember her playing Rhoda’s cynical air-hostess friend in the late seventies.
