It feels like we haven’t seen Robert De Niro in forever but last weekend he turned up in a class SNL sketch alongside Ben Stiller that ripped off Meet the Parents, and now he’s appeared on Jimmy Fallon’s talk show.

The actor talked about the Tribeca Film Festival, which is now in its 17th year and which he co-founded, but even more excitedly, he talked about his upcoming Netflix movie The Irishman.

In case you haven’t heard of it, the movie is directed by Martin Scorsese and stars the likes of Joe Pesci, Al Pacino and Harvey Keitel so hopes are pretty high for this one.

Photos from the set have leaked showing De Niro in platform shoes opposite co-star Pacino, who had something funny going on with his own feet.

He explains below why he was wearing the shoes at about the two and a half minute mark. In any case, we recommend you watch the interview through because De Niro is damn charismatic.
