Pesci added to cast, Venice Festival Sunday
  • Confirming online rumors, Joe Pesci has been added to the cast of The Good Shepherd after an eight-year absence from films in a "small but pivotal role." As noted at Filmjerk:

    Pesci will play a reputed crime boss by the name of Palmi, one of Wilson's targets.

  • The Brothers Grimm earned $15.1 million at the US box office last weekend, which was a very respectable total considering its troubled history. Terry Gilliam and the cast will present the film at the Venice Film Festival on Sunday.

  • From the NY Post:

    Matt Damon's girlfriend, Luciana Barroso, was rushed to the hospital Sunday after she suffered a bad case of food poisoning. Our spy spotted Damon comforting a tearful Barroso in the St. Vincent's emergency room. A spokeswoman for Damon — in town shooting the Robert De Niro-helmed "The Good Shepherd" opposite Angelina Jolie — confirmed that Barroso was sickened by something she ate. "She had food poisoning and got really dehydrated because of that," the rep told us.

  • A Gawker sighting.

    Great news to hear that Joe Pesci is going to be in The Good Shepard. Also, I really hope that Luciana Barroso, is alright and that she's not too sick as of today, August 31st. Food poisoning sucks.:( I know because ive had it.

    Matt always looks good in a tux, recalling TLoBV, but I'm having such a hard time with what they've done to his hair. I could live with the extensions if the part, knowing where his natural part is, wasn't in such a weird place. I think that's going to distract me more than anything else in this movie.

    True dat, man.

    Yeah, but I'd like to double the thankyous here. Don't know what my Matt-fanatic-ism would do without you. Thanks a ton.


    P.S. The Spotting said that his jog was like him flat-out running... Hmmm...Talented, nice, beautiful, smart AND athletic. Luciana is a lucky girl :D
