EXPLAIN....................Or I'll make you an offer you can't refuse ;)


Brad Pitt,an Irishman in'Snatch' ' Devils Own'

Mike Myers the loveble Spy from London!!!!

Daniel Day Lewis, Leonardo DiCaprio 'Gangs of New York'

Dick Van Dyke. Everyones favorite Cockney!!!!......................



......................Now I guess I'm missing the point, but this week I've watched my Godfather Trilogy which snowballed to Goodfellas, Casino, Bronx Tale, Carlito's Way, Donnie Brasco (Don't get excited thats 'BRASCO' not 'darko' :p), OH and naturally the Soprano's.

Why OH Why are the same actors used in these films over the last 20yrs???? I'm not knocking it, I love everyone of them but I can't understand why they don't use different actors????


Anyone got any ideas????

Simple. They use the same actors because they're bloody brilliant

Nothing wrong with Donnie Brasco. It's an amazing film and Depp's best performance :)

I didn't realise Pauly (Tony Sirico) from Sopranos was in Goodfella's.

I love the Guy he's brilliant!!!!


When I mentioned 'Don't get excited', I just didn't want to stir anymore emotions when it came to Darko. Should have known your sixth sense would have picked up on a thread that mentioned it!!!! :laugh:

I would argue with that :) Some of his other films he has been great in, certainly my fave male actor.

Any the guy that plays Pauly, the mafia boss in Goodfellas, also plays another mafia boss in the childrens film 'See Spot Run'.

I haven't done any research into this, so it may be 100% false, but I would have thought that some of these movies have the same casting directors, and I'm sure casting directors have their own favorite actors, which is why you see "cliques" of actors in several movies.

Chris from the Sopranos is also in Goodfellas - he plays Spider, the kid that Joe Pesci shoots in the foot. You can also see Paulie, Pussy and Janice from the Sopranos in Mickey Blue eyes, the Hugh Grant mob spoof.

Talking of Mob spoofs, do not under any circumstances watch Mafia! - it's dreadful.
