Joseph Frank Pesci ( PESH-ee,; born February 9, 1943) is an American actor, comedian and singer. Known for portraying tough, volatile characters, in a variety of genres, he is best known for his roles as Vincent Gambini in My Cousin Vinny (1992), Harry Lyme in Home Alone and Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, as Leo Getz in the Lethal Weapon franchise, and for co-starring with Robert De Niro in the Martin Scorsese films Raging Bull (1980), Goodfellas (1990), and Casino (1995).

Pesci won the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as the psychopathic gangster Tommy DeVito (based on Thomas DeSimone) in Goodfellas; he had been previously nominated for the same award for his role as Joey LaMotta in Raging Bull.
