“I hear things, I hear things,” as Bobby DeNiro would say. Today, the talented actor Robert DeNiro is 68 years old. I don’t know of any other contemporary actor who does it all so well – drama, comedy, playing the hero and the heavy.

According to Wikipedia:

“Robert De Niro, Jr. (born August 17, 1943) is an American actor, director and producer. His first major film role was in 1973′s Bang the Drum Slowly. In 1974, he played the young Vito Corleone in The Godfather Part II, a role that won him the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor.

His critically acclaimed, longtime collaboration with Martin Scorsese began with 1973′s Mean Streets, and earned De Niro an Academy Award for Best Actor for his portrayal of Jake LaMotta in the 1980 film Raging Bull. He was also nominated for an Academy Award for his roles in Scorsese’s Taxi Driver (1976) and Cape Fear (1991). In addition, he received nominations for his acting in Michael Cimino’s The Deer Hunter (1978) and Penny Marshall’s Awakenings (1990). Also in 1990, his portrayal as Jimmy Conway in Scorsese’s Goodfellas earned him a BAFTA nomination.

He has earned four nominations for the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy: New York, New York (1977), Midnight Run (1988), Analyze This (1999) and Meet the Parents (2000).
