After the film Pesci returned to run his restaurant in The Bronx, Pesci then got a phone call from Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro who were impressed with his performance in the film and asked him to co-star in a 1980 film with Robert De Niro, Martin Scorsese’s Raging Bull. During the monologue, he restored a picture of Pope John Paul II, which had been torn by Sinéad O’Connor on the previous broadcast; he demonstrated this by tearing up a photo of O’Connor, which was met with huge applause. in 1988, Pesci co-starred with pop singer Michael Jackson in the musical-fantasy film Moonwalker as the film’s antagonist, Frankie “Mr. Big” LiDeo (an anagram for one of the film’s producers and longtime Jackson manager Frank DiLeo). He later co-starred in the blockbuster Home Alone (1990), playing Harry Lyme; one of two bumbling burglars (along with good friend Daniel Stern), who attempt to rob the house of the character played by Macaulay Culkin. He had starring roles in several other films including Easy Money (1983), Once Upon a Time in America (1984), Man on Fire (1987), The Super (1991), Jimmy Hollywood (1994), With Honors (also 1994) and Gone Fishin’ (1997). “Wise Guy” interpolated the 1980 Hip-Hop hit “Rapture” by Blondie and was co-written and produced by Poke & Tone–the Hip-Hop production team better known as Trackmasters, who first musically introduced the world to 50 Cent.
