Pesci Returns for De Niro's "Shepherd"

by | August 31, 2005 | Comments

Ed Havens over at has a scoop that should please fans of the once-prolific and now-retired Joe Pesci: The actor will return to the screen for a "small yet pivotal" role in Robert De Niro‘s "The Good Shepherd."

"From a screenplay by "Forrest Gump" screenwriter Eric Roth, "The Good Shepherd" tells the mostly true story of James Wilson (a character reported to be based on legendary CIA spymaster James Jesus Angleton, and played in the film by Matt Damon), one of the founding members of the Central Intelligence Agency. Beginning as an scholar at Yale, the film follows Wilson as he is recruited to join the secret Skull and Bones fraternity, a brotherhood and breeding ground for future world leaders, where his acute mind, spotless reputation and sincere belief in the American way of life render him a prime candidate for a career in intelligence."

In addition to old pals De Niro and Pesci, the ensemble cast includes William Hurt, Timothy Hutton, Alec Baldwin, Billy Crudup, Keir Dullea, Michael Gambon, Gabriel Macht, and John Turturro.
