Martin Scorsese, Robert DeNiro and Jerry Lewis in conversation. Do you really need to be sold any further on this exclusive clip?
The Tribeca Film Festival wrapped up a week ago, but we're still kicking ourselves for missing out on the big closing night event-- a special screening of Scorsese's The King of Comedy, with DeNiro, Lewis and Scorsese all on hand to talk about the 1982 cult classic. Jerry Lewis was an icon of comedy by the time the film was made, but these days he's basically a legend, even more so because he rarely makes public appearances. As you can tell from the above clip he's gotten up there in years, but he also hasn't lost a bit of the comic timing he's brought to a full eight decades on screen.
If you want to catch up with everything we actually did manage to see at the Tribeca Film Festival, you can click here. And it won't be too long before Lewis appears in public again-- he's heading to the Cannes Film Festival next week for the premiere of Max Rose, his first live-action film since 1995. As for DeNiro and Scorsese, they're as busy as ever. Scorsese's The Wolf of Wall Street, which reunites him with Leonardo DiCaprio, comes to theaters on November 15. DeNiro, who founded the Tribeca Film Festival and is surely taking a much-needed breather after this year's edition, is teaming up with a whole bunch of icons-- Morgan Freeman, Michael Douglas, and Kevin Kline-- for Last Vegas, which is due in theaters not long after The Wolf of Wall Street, on December 20.
