Unlike many of the other actors in the film, Joe was already a massive star, best known for his portrayal of Tommy DeVito in Goodfellas, which came out just months before Home Alone.

In 1991 he won the supporting actor Oscar for his role in the crime drama directed by Martin Scorsese.

He reprised his role of Harry Lime next to Daniel Stern’s Marv Merchants for the second installment of the Home Alone franchise.

Despite other successful roles in films such as Casino, My Cousin Vinny, Gone Fishin’ and Lethal Weapon 3 and 4, the actor kept out of the limelight after 1999, announcing his retirement from acting to focus on his music career.

Pesci, who is now 79 years old, came out of retirement to star in the 2019 film The Irishman, which earned him an Oscar nomination.

He also stars as Pete Davidson’s grandfather in Bupkis, the forthcoming Peacock comedy series based on a fictionalized version of Davidson’s life.
