The Gang's All Here
Pitt, Gandolfini, and More at New York's Killing Them Softly Premiere
Last night's Cinema Society and DeLeón Tequila screening of The Weinstein Company's Killing Them Softly was a joyful reunion—the gangster flick features a cast of longtime friends and colleagues, all of whom are veterans of the genre. "We've worked together a lot over the last 15 years," said Vincent Curatola of his costars James Gandolfini, Ray Liotta, and Max Casella. "Been to a lot of weddings and a lot of funerals." The gang decided to get together one last time for a different kind of mob flick. "It's a great gangster movie, but it's also funny. The humor made the whole thing more interesting to me," Gandolfini told Style.com. Working with Brad Pitt was also a draw. "He's a character actor—some people you're working with their personality. But Brad is a true talent; with him you're working with that character." After such a long run as Tony Soprano, Gandolfini said that this would be his last gangster. "Well, until I need more money."
Guests moved downtown to No. 8 for the after-party, where Rose Byrne, Rachel Roy, and Francisco Costa all tried to catch a moment with Brad Pitt. Costa swooned, "We were on the same flight from L.A. to Paris a few months ago, and when I saw him tonight he remembered me!"
