Todd Phillips’ Joker film starring Joaquin Phoenix as the future Batman villain is deep into filming and today it was announced that they cast the main character’s future nemesis and his butler.
Adding De Niro to the film makes a lot of sense. After all, director Todd Phillips has continually referenced two of his films as touchstones for his Joker movie: Taxi Driver and The King of Comedy.
Sightings of Joe Pesci around Hollywood in the last decade have become more rare than proof of the Yeti, but the actor is making his return to join the cast of the upcoming Martin Scorsese film, The Irishman.
