Irishman Cast

With a week to go before it hits televisions around the world, Netflix revealed a new trailer for Martin Scorsese‘s “The Irishman.”

Robert De Niro stars as Frank “The Irishman” Sheeran, a truck driver who would eventually become a union organizer and leader, and trusted confidant of Jimmy Hoffa. The film unfolds as Frank tells his life story, getting a job and making connections with the Bufalino crime family in Pennsylvania.

Al Pacino plays Jimmy Hoffa, the Teamsters president whose disappearance in 1975 was never officially answered and become one of the century’s biggest unsolved mysteries. This is Pacino’s first time working for director Martin Scorsese. He and De Niro are joined by Joe Pesci, who stars as Russell Bufalino, the quietly terrifying mob boss that helps Frank build his career.
