Some of his indelible comedic roles include the fast-talking mob accountant-turned real-estate salesman-now-turned private investigator in three of the Lethal Weapon movies; one of a team of inept burglars in Home Alone and Home Alone II; and a questionable New York lawyer practicing his peculiarly successful style of law in My Cousin Vinny. In 1997 Pesci teamed with Danny Glover in the comedy Gone Fishin'.
Following his breakout role in Raging Bull, Pesci appeared in I'm Dancing as Fast as I Can, Eureka and Easy Money. He teamed again with Raging Bull star Robert De Niro in Once Upon a Time in America (1983) and appeared in De Niro's directorial debut, A Bronx Tale; the two later starred for Martin Scorsese in Casino.
Pesci's other screen credits include With Honors, Jimmy Hollywood, David Ferrie in Oliver Stone's JFK, The Super and The Public Eye, in which Pesci starred as a character based on the photographer Weegee. Most recently he appeared in the comedy Eight Heads in a Duffle Bag.
The Newark, New Jersey native made his film debut in the 1975 film Death Collector.
