Born: February 9, 1943 in Newark, New Jersey, USA

[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.

[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.

[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.

[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.
