Action Bronson is taking a break eating food on camera and rapping about food on-stage (and in the studio) to join Robert DeNiro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci in front of the camera for Martin Scorsese’s new Netflix movie The Irishman.
Based on Charles Brandt’s book I Heard You Paint Houses, The Irishman dives into the mysteries surrounding the murder of Jimmy Hoffa as Frank “the Irishman” Sheeran lives the life of one of the most notorious hitmen in history. According to Brandt, the phrase, “I heard you paint houses” basically means “you’ll kill a man.”
Here’s Bronson with the film legends.
As the host for Viceland’s F*ck, That’s Delicious, his late night talk show spoof Untitled Action Bronson Show, and Traveling the Stars, Bronson isn’t shy in front of cameras. But, aside from a few roles doing voice work for a Lucas Brothers cartoon, he hasn’t really stepped outside the box to play anyone beyond himself before. He is going to be in another show from the Workaholics crew this year, however.
Now the guy is going to be shoulder to shoulder with some of the best ever in front of and behind the camera. So far, it’s unknown how big his role is, but he’ll be easy to spot.
