Joe Pesci: Talk about a change in tone: In the same year Joe Pesci starred as the homicidal mob soldier in Martin Scorseses Goodfellas, he also had a smaller role as a burglar in Chris Columbus Home Alone. In one, he got to say, Am I a clown? Do I amuse you? and made audiences shiver. In the other, he got hit on the head a lot, and audiences continued to shiver. He followed it up with less-than-intense roles in Gone Fishin and 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag. Dean Williams / Hollywood Pictures Co.
