De Niro is Irish Catholic (and Italian, Dutch, French, German, English) but he's more Irish than anything. Well, maybe not American.

His father is half Italian/half Irish. He's neither on his mother's side. He's equal parts Irish and Italian. He has an Italian last name and an Italian-style nose and mannerisms, so tends to be type cast as Italian (and sometimes Jewish). Although in the Goodfellas he played a half Irish/half Italian.

Pesci is playing an Italian mob boss that Deniro's character works for. Now passing off Pesci as anything but Italian would be ridiculous.

Not really a trailer, but the title reveal for the next Bond film...




Based on the font choice, I assume Bond will be infiltrating the Love Boat in this one.

No time to die

Quantum of Solace is the stupidest Bond title ever.

This is apparently Daniel Craig's final outing as 007, so I'd love to see him go out on a high note with this one. One of the best Bonds ever IMO.

I feel like you aren't aware of the 24 other Bond movies. Some choicely named classics:

You Only Live Twice
Time to Kill
Live and Let Die
A View to a Kill
Tomorrow Never Dies
Die Another Day
The World is Not Enough

Easily as good or better than all of those. But you're right on one thing, Quantum of Solace is just bad.

Everyone knows Quantum of Solace was the title of a Fleming short story right...not just something random that they choose to call the movie.

I like No Time to Die. Very old school Bond title.

I've heard this song and dance before. He was supposed to be done after Skyfall but then all of a sudden the giant truck full of money showed up and he unexpectedly changed his mind....

I think after Skyfall he said something like "I never want to play Bond again" but it was in the same way you might say "I never want to see another pizza again" after eating 3 of them. He wasn't really serious at that point.

I'm pretty sure the rumors before were just him being like "yeah, I don't know..." -- now it's been pretty well publicized that this is his last outing. He's 51 right now, he'd be pushing 55 if they waited another four years for the next.
