Netflix has blessed us all with a special 20-minute clip of The Irishman roundtable with veterans Martin Scorsese, Al Pacino, Robert De Niro and Joe Pesci.
The four Hollywood legends had recorded a roundtable discussion about their careers, acting techniques and more, shortly before the release of The Irishman in 2019. Titled Table For Four, Netflix has now released the clip for all of us to witness.
The entire 20-minute clip shows the four greats discussing everything from acting in the older days of Hollywood to how they met each other 40 to 50 years ago. Pacino and De Niro even recount stories of never rehearsing for a scene, along with talks about the film-making process of the The Irishman.

Al Pacino Compares The Godfather, Coda to The Irishman
In other news, Al Pacino compared the upcoming, re-edited The Godfather, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone to Scorsese’s The Irishman. In an interview with Deadline, Pacino did not want to compare the third Godfather film with the other two, but said that it is similar to The Irishman in some ways.
“The Irishman had the same people, but looked at them with a different lens, a different story,” he said.
“That worked well for Marty because you weren’t comparing it to Goodfellas or Casino. Godfather, The Death of Michael Corleone is also different and hard to compare to the other two, including the tragic place this leads to,” he added.
He also revealed that he was glad that Francis Ford Coppola got the opportunity to do this re-edit and hoped it would “resolve things” for his daughter, Sofia Coppola, who played Mary Corleone in the original film.
“There wasn’t an internet then but there is now and I hope they are decent to her, and more understanding,” said Pacino. “I do think the injury to his daughter was a real motivator for Francis. He probably just stared at the painting for a good long time, trying to figure out. And then, boom, he found it.”
