Although Robert De Niro (an American of Italian / Irish ancestry) was always Scorsese's first choice for the role, when Scorsese originally proposed this project to Paramount, both Liam Neeson and Pierce Brosnan (both of whom are actually Irish born) were briefly considered as alternative choices in case De Niro was either not available or was asked to take the role of Russell Buffalino after Joe Pesci initially proved reluctant. Although both Neeson and Brosnan are about a decade younger than De Niro, and Neeson had a closer physical resemblance to the real-life Frank Sheeran, Scorsese had doubts about whether he could convincingly pull off the accent consistently. Brosnan was also contemplated, but it is believed he was not contacted as, by then, Pesci finally agreed to play the role of Russell meaning that alternative choices were no longer required.

In the middle of the movie, when the Hoffa character stops Sheenan from storming out of the office in which Hoffa was haranguing his staff, Sheenan puts on his overcoat and the two discuss their differences, the camera switching perspective. When the camera fixes on Sheenan, the lapel of the overcoat is tuned down. When the camera looks at the Hoffa character, the lapel is turned up. See more »
I was worried about the length of the film before i attended the screening, but i can honestly say, i was gripped all the way through, De Niro back to his best, Pesci was fantastic, Pacino was electric, Keitel was menacing & Stephen Graham held his own amongst this legendary cast.
A return to this world that Scorsese has mastered with some of his best films & this film sits right up there right next to them.
Get comfy & enjoy the great story telling ability of these masters at work.
