Interesting Facts

#Fact
1After securing Macaulay Culkin, Pesci and Daniel Stern for Home Alone (1990), Chris Columbus felt confident enough to cast actors who were his heroes growing up, like Catherine O'Hara after seeing her work on SCTV (1976) as well as John Heard, and Tim Curry and Rob Schneider on Home Alone 2: Lost in New York (1992) because they were all open to the films.
2Chris Columbus cast Pesci in Home Alone (1990) because he was one of his heroes but he didn't think he'd get him for such a broadly comedic role.
3He was nominated for the 2015 New Jersey Hall of Fame for his services in the Performance Arts.
4In 1992 he reprised the only 2 film roles that he played at least 2 times - Leo Getz in "Lethal Weapon 3" (a role which he would also play again for the fourth installment in 1998) and Harry in "Home Alone 2: Lost in New York".
5His portrayal of Tommy DeVito in Goodfellas (1990) has been the subject of several parodies. The character "Pesto" in the Animaniacs sketch "Goodfeathers," has DeVito's short temper and tendency to misinterpret a compliment. On "The Joe Pesci Show" on Saturday Night Live, Pesci (played by Jim Brewer) is shown to have that same tendency, only to have the real Pesci show up, deny that he is like that in real life, only to lose his temper and beat up Jim Brewer a la Tommy DeVito. And in the film Jersey Boys (2014), his character (played by Joseph Russo), even quotes Pesci's famous "funny how?" line from the film. That is even more fitting in this film, as it charts his relationship with the real Tommy DeVito.
6His acceptance speech at the Academy Awards is the second shortest in history at just six words and three seconds. The shortest is Alfred Hitchcock who simply said ''Thanks'' when receiving his Lifetime achievement award.
7Despite being known for playing short-tempered and violent characters, his co-stars have always spoken fondly of him and described him as soft-spoken and humble.
8Is known to have a very foul mouth, both on and off screen. On the set of Home Alone, Chris Columbus placed a Swear Jar for the adult actors to place change in whenever they used bad language. Supposedly, Pesci filled it up in a single day.
9Had a daughter (born around 1967) from his first marriage.
10Joe was 21-years-old when he married his first wife in 1964.
11Was in a relationship with Leighanne Littrell, wife of Backstreet Boys singer Brian Littrell, from 1995-1997.
12He was nominated for a 2013 New Jersey Hall of Fame for Arts and Entertainment.
13Is a producer of the multi-Tony-winning stage musical 'Jersey Boys", about the formation of the famous "Four Seasons" group, and his real-life role in the formation of the group was portrayed in the original Broadway production of the show by Michael Longoria.
14In July 2011 he sued the producers of The Life and Death of John Gotti (2017), claiming they'd promised him a major role in the film for which he had packed on extra pounds, and then changed their minds, offering him a minor character.
15Has one daughter, Tiffany.
16Was considered for the role of Owen in Throw Momma from the Train (1987).
17(Late April 2008) Ended his 9-month engagement to Angie Everhart. The couple had been together for 8 years.
18The Good Shepherd (2006) , in 2006, was the first movie he had made in 8 years.
19According to Maxim magazine, he wrote and directed the "You think I'm funny?" scene from Goodfellas (1990) at director Martin Scorsese's request.
20Robert De Niro accidentally broke his rib in a sparring scene in Raging Bull (1980). This shot appears in the film: De Niro hits Pesci in the side, Pesci groans, and there is a quick cut to another angle. The very same rib was broken again in Casino (1995) when a heavy who was holding Joe down, used him as a hassock to get up after a take.
21Childhood friends with Frankie Valli, Tommy DeVito, and Nick Massi. Introduced them to Bob Gaudio. Valli, DeVito, Massi, and Gaudio became the rock group The Four Seasons.
22Pesci's performance as "Tommy DeVito" in Goodfellas (1990) is ranked #96 on Premiere Magazine's 100 Greatest Movie Characters of All Time.
23Was the original choice to play "Fergie" in Judge Dredd (1995) but turned it down. The part was given to Rob Schneider, instead.
24He has a house in Lavalette, New Jersey. In the 1980s, he established a reputation as a community Little League baseball coach.
25Sang as Joe Doggs with jazz organ player Joey DeFrancesco. They recorded an album on Concord Records in 2003 titled, "Joey DeFrancesco featuring Joe Doggs, Falling in Love Again."
26Very good friends with fellow actor and frequent co-star, Robert De Niro.
27Is an avid golfer
28Did Judo in his teens
29Italian-American
30After winning the Oscar for his role as Tom DeVito in the movie Goodfellas (1990) his entire acceptance speech was "It's my privilege. Thank you." When asked why he didn't say more he said "I really didn't think I was going to win".
31Close friend of George Carlin, and mentioned by Carlin in his bit "There is No God.".
32The word pesci in Italian means "fish" (plural).
33Born at 11:45am-EWT
34Eyes are different colors.
35Director Martin Scorsese and actor Robert De Niro tracked down Pesci after seeing him in The Death Collector (1976) because they felt he was perfect for the role of Joey La Motta in Raging Bull (1980). Before they persuaded him to take the role, Pesci had been on the verge of giving up his faltering acting career.
36Started out with Joey Dee and The Starliters, working his way around as a waiter and singing and playing guitar in local nightclubs.
37He recorded an album in the 60s under the name Joe Ritchie. Titled "Little Joe Sure Can Sing", it flopped.

Quotes

#Quote
1[On Martin Scorsese] Marty is probably the best director I've ever worked with and one of the best directors of our generation and previous generations.
2[On Robert De Niro] We work so well together. It's like breathing in and out. It's so easy for us- we feed off each other.
3[On Raging Bull] I remember being asked do you think we should shoot in black and white or in color. And I said black and white without any hesitation.
4[on his good friend and My Cousin Vinny (1992) co-star, the late Fred Gwynne] It takes somebody who's very serious to pull off a character like Herman Munster [from Gwynne's series The Munsters (1964)]. It's not simple to play the goof. Fred was not Herman. He was an intelligent, quiet gentleman.
