  • I remember growing up in Jersey and my dad used to --

  • My dad used to come into the bedroom.

  • He'd wake me up, "Hey, Bruce! Hey, Bruce, you sleeping?"

  • I'd get up and go, "No, dad, I'm not sleeping, I'm dreaming."

  • [ Light laughter ]

  • He'd say, "What are you dreaming about?

  • You can tell me."

  • I said, "I'm just dreaming!

  • I'm just dreaming that, one day, Humpty Dumpty

  • That's what I'm talking about!"

  • -Yeah. And they gave you --

  • -He wasn't a barber. [ Laughter ]

  • -No, no, not at all.

  • But you know, a little bit, Al Pacino.

  • -Yeah, I was lucky enough to do a play with Al,

  • I don't want to say too much. -Yeah, yeah.

  • -But I'll tell you one quick little story,

  • 'cause it's very short.

  • But, you know, there's a scene in the movie.

  • And Harvey Keitel and I are sitting at the table,

  • and Al comes over as Hoffa, and all he does is come over and go,

  • "Skinny, Angelo," and, you know, it's an ad-lib.

  • And, so, we say hello, and then, on the next take,

  • Harvey goes, "Let's not say anything to him

  • when he comes over, because we don't like him anyway,

  • so let's ignore him. Let's ice him out."

  • So, do the second take, and he comes over,

  • and he's like, "Skinny, Angelo," and we don't do anything.

  • And he goes, "I'm feeling a chill."

  • [ Laughter ]

  • And he walked away, and it was the greatest improv.

  • -I'm feeling a chill. -It was so quick.

  • And he walked away, and it was awesome.

  • -I love this movie so much. It's fantastic.
