Robert De Niro is fine with viewers pausing his three hour-long epic The Irishman and watching it in two sittings.

The gangster drama, based on the Charles Brandt’s book I Heard You Paint Houses, follows the story of mob hitman Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran, who was involved in the infamous disappearance and murder of union boss Jimmy Hoffa.

De Niro, who plays Sheeran in Martin Scorsese’s award-winning epic, was made for streaming service Netflix, and only had a limited release in cinemas back in November.

However, viewers at home are struggling with the runtime, which is just over 3.5 hours, and have been pausing the film halfway through to watch it over two sittings.

And in an interview with the BBC on the red carpet at the 2020 British Academy Film Awards (BAFTAs) on Sunday, De Niro gave his permission for fans to take their time with the epic.

“It’s okay,” he said after some hesitation. “Ideally you watch it in one sitting, in a big (movie) theatre with people, but there are some people who can’t do that, so it’s okay.”

The Oscar-winning actor didn’t mind that viewers weren’t watching it all in one go, so long as they understood and appreciated the movie, which features stellar performances from his co-stars Joe Pesci and Al Pacino.

“So long as you get the feeling from the film, you get it. That’s all,” De Niro stated.

Joe Pesci grilled Stephen Graham over his role in The Irishman as he was worried about an English actor playing one of his old mafia acquaintances.

Graham plays Anthony ‘Tony Pro’ Provenzano in Martin Scorsese’s new movie, which also stars Al Pacino and Robert De Niro.

However, the Boardwalk Empire star has now shared that he found meeting Pesci to be mortifying, as the actor knew Tony Pro, who was a leading gangland figure in his home state of New Jersey, and originally had eyes on that part.

“Awkward is not the word,” Stephen told U.K. chat show host Graham Norton. “It was the first couple of days of filming, and I was told that he wanted to see me. He asked, ‘Where are you from?’ I said, ‘I’m from England, Liverpool’ and he went, ‘You’re not Italian?’ I apologised for it and he was like, ‘Okay, you’d better do this right,’ to which I said, ‘I’ll do my best.'”

Graham went on to reveal that Pesci, who plays quietly spoken gangster Russell Bufalino in the film, had coveted the role due to his connection with the top mafioso.

“‘I wanted your part,'” the star recalled Pesci telling him. “I was like, ‘But your part’s massive, you’ve got loads to do.’ And he said, ‘I knew Tony so make sure you do a good job.’ The meeting really couldn’t have got any worse!”

The British actor also revealed that the Home Alone star insisted he completely ditched his Liverpool accent during filming.

“A few days later he came up to me and said, ‘You’re doing really well, come and have some dinner,” the 46-year-old remembered. “But then he said, ‘Why are you talking like that? Why don’t you talk as your character so I can understand you?'”

The Irishman is available on Netflix now.

Al Pacino feels like he’s living in “a dream” as his new mob movie The Irishman continues to rack up top honours during Hollywood’s awards season.

The screen icon has so far picked up best supporting actor nominations for the Golden Globes, the Critics’ Choice Awards, and the Screen Actors Guild Awards, while The Irishman itself has received numerous Best Picture nominations.

Pacino’s role as labour union chief Jimmy Hoffa – who vanished without a trace in 1975 and was declared dead in 1982 – is also expected to land him his first Oscar nomination in more than 25 years when the shortlist is announced in January, and the actor has admitted the acclaim is all so flattering at this late stage in his career.

“Some strange stuff is happening with The Irishman now,” he mused on The Hollywood Reporter’s Awards Chatter podcast.

“I’m feeling things and I’m thinking, ‘I’ve somehow been through this before, but it was way back, when a lot of (awards season) attention was being paid to me – I don’t know what it was!’ And then I realise, ‘Well, I don’t remember because it was the ’70s!’ I don’t remember much of the ’70s…”

Pacino picked up his first four Oscar nominations in the 1970s, for his work in The Godfather and its sequel, The Godfather: Part II, Serpico, and Dog Day Afternoon, and experiencing the high praise all over again at the age of 79 is quite the honour.

“It’s extraordinary. It’s almost like a dream…,” he shared. “And I think I can handle it a little better now. It feels great.”

The Irishman, directed by Martin Scorsese, also co-stars Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci. It is now streaming on Netflix.

Martin Scorsese: ‘Please don’t watch The Irishman on a phone’

Martin Scorsese has pleaded with viewers to avoid watching The Irishman on their mobile phones.

The Goodfellas director’s three-and-a-half-hour gangster epic, which stars Robert De Niro, Joe Pesci, and Al Pacino, became available to stream on Netflix last week, with subscribers being able to watch the film in all manner of ways – from their TV sets to their computer, tablet or phones.

However, when speaking to film critic Peter Travers on his YouTube show, Popcorn with Peter Travers, Scorsese made it clear that he didn’t want viewers to consume his movie via their phones.

“I would suggest – if you ever want to see one of my pictures, or most films – please, please don’t look at it on a phone, please. An iPad, a big iPad, maybe,” he said, adding that wouldn’t know how to make a movie specifically for phones. “I don’t know how to do it. I wish I could, I don’t know how. No, I don’t get it.”

The 77-year-old also hopes viewers will watch the film from start to finish in one sitting without distractions, with him insisting that The Irishman is capable of pulling in and sustaining people’s attention despite its lengthy runtime.

“It was an interesting narrative structure, and it got me involved each time. In a funny way, I think I made it to cover all the bases in terms of how you could watch this picture,” the filmmaker continued. “Ideally, I’d like you to go to a theatre, look at it on a big screen from beginning to end. And I know, it’s long – you gotta get up, you gotta go to the bathroom, that sort of thing, I get it – but also at home, I think if you can make a night of it, or an afternoon thereof, and know that you’re not gonna answer the phone or you’re not gonna get up too much, it might work.”

Robert De Niro insisted Martin Scorsese made The Irishman and cast Joe Pesci and Al Pacino.

The three-and-a-half hour-long gangster drama is based on the 2004 book I Heard You Paint Houses and follows the true story of mob hitman Frank ‘The Irishman’ Sheeran, who was allegedly involved in the 1975 disappearance of notorious union boss Jimmy Hoffa.

De Niro plays Sheeran, while Pacino plays Hoffa, with Pesci back on the big screen after a nine-year break to play mobster Russell Bufalino in the Netflix epic.

In an interview with GQ magazine, the Oscar winner revealed that after he read I Heard You Paint Houses, he immediately spoke to his frequent collaborator Scorsese.

“And then I said to Marty, we have to do this. I said, ‘Marty, Joe plays Russell. Al plays Hoffa,” De Niro said. “I was very happy to get us all together, to have us all together and do probably our last movie together.”

Due to the film taking place over more than 50 years, the Hollywood veteran confessed that he and Scorsese looked at getting in other actors to play the younger versions of Sheeran, Hoffa and Bufalino.

“We talked about lots of stuff, you know? Getting younger actors in and so on,” he added.

However, Scorsese decided to go with high-tech CGI which could digitally de-age the actors in post-production, and settled on Netflix to finance the project, which had a budget of around $100 million (£81 million).

The Irishman is in cinemas now for a short theatrical run and will debut on the streaming service on 27 November, in order to ensure that the movie is eligible for awards season.

And De Niro isn’t fazed by the prospect of more people watching the film at home than in the cinema.

“I’m aware of that. What I’m happy about is that we got to make the movie the way we wanted and we got the money to do so,” he shared, before confessing that he wasn’t even a Netflix subscriber.

Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese had to team up to convince Joe Pesci to come out of his decade-long retirement for The Irishman.

The 76-year-old actor and the veteran filmmaker had to pester their frequent collaborator a rumoured 40 times before he accepted the role as real-life Mafia crime boss Russell Bufalino for the film, a report the pair do not dispute.

“A lot of what I was saying was, ‘Come on, who knows if we’re ever going to have this chance again? Let’s do it!'” De Niro told Entertainment Weekly of his exchanges with Pesci before filming began. “He loves Marty and greatly respects him and knows that if he’s in Marty’s hands, it’s going to be OK.”

Pesci previously appeared in Scorsese’s Raging Bull, Casino, and Goodfellas – all of which starred De Niro.

“Bob and Joe, they have their own language,” Scorsese noted, crediting the actor for pushing Pesci to ultimately accept the part.

Elsewhere in the interview, the director revealed he had a hard time trying to get financial backers for his pricey movie, which featured groundbreaking CGI to de-age the main characters.

“People just weren’t interested in financing it – and that was before the CGI,” Scorsese explained. “Nobody would give us the money. But I really felt that De Niro and I had one more picture to make, at least, and he was really connected with the character.”

The Irishman, which also stars Al Pacino, hits cinemas from 1 November before debuting on Netflix on 27 November.
