Pesci was born in Newark, New Jersey where he worked as a haircut in the 1960s and released an album entitled Little bowl Sure Can Sing under the name Joseph Richie. Also in his band was good friend and future fellow actor Frank Vincent. As an actor his breakthrough came in 1980 opposite Robert De Niro in Martin Scorsese's boxing film Raging Bull. Subsequently he acted opposite De Niro several times, often in a similar role: in Once Upon A Time In America (in which he was cast at the behest of his friend De Niro), Goodfellas (for which he received the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor), and Casino. The pairing became well-known enough to inspire a recurring sketch on Saturday Night Live, called The Joe Pesci Show. Pesci also starred in Home Alone, JFK, and My Cousin Vinny. He also appears in three of the Lethal Weapon films.

In 1999, Pesci announced that he was leaving acting in order to pursue his musical career and to enjoy life away from the camera. Finally in 2004-2005, he announced that he was coming out of retirement and is going to star in his good friend Robert De Niro's The Good Shepherd.


    * He is mostly known for swearing in movies. After Goodfellas, Pesci starred in Home Alone. He was used to using the       F-Word so much that Chris Columbus advised him to say fridge instead of fuck.
    * His song My Cousin Vinny was a pretty big hit in some European countries (the song is not directly related to his movie       My Cousin Vinny (1992)).
    * Started out with Joey Dee and the Starliters, working his way around as a waiter and singing and playing guitar in       local nightclubs.
    * Director Martin Scorsese and actor Robert De Niro tracked down Pesci after seeing his role in The Death Collector       (1976) because they felt he was perfect for the role of Joey La Motta in Raging Bull (1980).
    * Each of his eyes is a different color.
    * 5'4" (163cm) tall.
    * The word Pesci in Italian means "fish" (plural).
    * Pesci's close friend George Carlin mentions him in his bit "There is No God," in which Carlin says that he prays to Joe       Pesci because, unlike God, Pesci can get things done... especially with a baseball bat.
    * After accepting his Oscar for the role of Tommy DeVito, his entire acceptance speech was "This is an honor and       privilege, thank you very much." When asked why he didn't say more, he said, "I really didn't think I was going to          win."
    * Did judo in his teens.
    * Is an avid golfer.
    * Pesci does not smoke, which is why his characters invariably chew toothpicks.
    * Very good friends with fellow actor and frequent co-star, Robert De Niro.
