Regis Philbin's farewell tour has celebrated the many half-weird, half-endearing aspects of his on-screen persona with a run of awesome montages. Monday's 'Live' (weekdays, syndicated on ABC) installment payed tribute to Regis' various bromances in a mancrush-mashup that featured footage of Reeg gushing over Matt Damon, Kobe Bryant, David Letterman and more.

In a surprise twist at the end of the tribute, Robert De Niro appeared from backstage to present Regis with a dozen roses and wish him a fond farewell.

As they hugged it out, Regis told De Niro, "You don't mind all the other guys, do you? They're just passing friends, you're the man, you really are." Right back at you, Reeg.

by Alex Moaba, posted Nov 7th 2011 10:45AM
Robert De Niro has played gangsters, mafia dons and sociopaths, and now he's set to take on the biggest white-collar villain of them all: disgraced Ponzi-schemer Bernie Madoff.

HBO, in collaboration with De Niro's Tribeca Productions, has purchased the rights to the book 'Truth and Consequences: Inside the Life of the Madoff Family,' according to the UK Daily Mail. The biography, which will serve as the source material for the TV movie, was the basis for the Madoff family's recent '60 Minutes' interviews.

'Reservation Road' writer John Burnham Schwartz will write the screenplay, according to Deadline. The book 'The Wizard of Lies: Bernie Madoff and the Death of Trust,' will also be used to inform the project.

Donald Trump Hits Back at Robert De Niro: 'Not the Brightest Bulb on the Planet' (VIDEO)

by Jeremy Taylor, posted Apr 25th 2011 2:00PM
Over the weekend Robert De Niro had some harsh words for Donald Trump, comparing him to a used-car salesman for his constant questioning of Barack Obama's birthplace.

Of course, Trump jumped at the opportunity to respond to De Niro's criticism when it was brought up during a phone interview he did Monday on 'Fox & Friends' (weekdays, 6 AM ET on Fox News)

"Well, he's not the brightest bulb in the planet," Trump said of De Niro. "I have been watching him over the years and I like his acting but in terms of when I watch him doing interviews and various other things, we are not dealing with Albert Einstein."

Robert De Niro Dresses in Drag, Flirts With Diddy on 'SNL' (VIDEO)

Robert De Niro Dresses in Drag, Flirts With Diddy on 'SNL'Well, Diddy got his wish, but was it worth it for Robert De Niro? Sean "Diddy" Combs was the musical guest on this week's 'Saturday Night Live' (Sat., 11:30PM ET on NBC). He appeared along with third-time host Bobby (we call him "Bobby") De Niro. And the rapper started a Twitter campaign to be included in a sketch with the actor.

So, that happened -- but it may not have been the highlight of De Niro's career. The musician and the actor appeared together in a sketch featuring Andy Samberg as "Blizzard Man" -- the world's most clueless (and untalented) rapper. De Niro dressed up in drag to play Blizzard Man's mom, and soon enough, Diddy was hitting on him ... well, her.

While De Niro was decked out in a form-fitting sweater, sunglasses, and a questionable hairstyle, Diddy attempted to seduce him (her). Mr. Combs laid down such lines such as "Girl, you the one that's hot fire," and "If you wasn't my man's mom, I'd tear that a## up" -- and okay, let's just shut this whole thing down right now.

An Open Letter to Robert De Niro: Please Don't Stink On 'SNL' This Time Around

by Joel Keller, posted Dec 3rd 2010 5:00PM
Robert De Niro hosts 'SNL' this week. Let's hope he doesn't stink like the last time he hosted.Dear Bob,

(I can call you Bob, right? I mean, we've never met, but I feel like we can be chummy enough for me to do that... no? Well, Ok, let me try again...)

Dear Mr. De Niro,

Despite the fact that I haven't seen a movie with you in it since the bitter and boring disappointment that was 'Showtime,' I'm still a huge fan of yours. Sure, you haven't exactly made the smartest career decisions over the last ten years; your most memorable roles lately seem to be in the endless stream of 'Fockers' movies that inflict themselves on the public every few years. But you built up plenty of goodwill with me over the decades, through movies as diverse as 'Taxi Driver' and 'Midnight Run' (still one of my favorites), for me to forgive the 21st century portion of your IMDb profile.

So, as a big fan of yours, I'm here, on my virtual knees. I don't usually beg anyone for anything, as I have my pride. But, pride be damned; I'm begging you right here and now:

Please don't suck on 'SNL' this weekend like you did the last time you hosted. I just can't go through that again.

Bradley Cooper Talks Acting with Robert De NiroWe've seen a lot of Bradley Cooper lately, as he promotes 'The A-Team.' But on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live' (weeknights, 12:05AM ET on ABC), the host wanted to hear about the actor's work with Robert De Niro on 'The Dark Fields.'

"I just finished a movie, yeah, with the big man ... I call him Bob -- it's crazy," said Cooper. For one scene, Cooper told De Niro to "just really lay into me so I'll really feel it ... Say I'm a fake and all this stuff."

The camera started rolling, and De Niro obliged, churning out a lengthy, withering critique.

Cooper's reaction? He missed his cue to walk into the camera frame. "It was so real, I was just destroyed."
