When Frank Sheeran First Met Russell Bufalino

In Charles Brandt’s book I Heard You Paint Houses, the source material for The Irishman, Frank Sheeran writes that he met Russell Bufalino (played by Joe Pesci in The Irishman) in “the mid-fifties, maybe 1955.”

That means that in the gas station scene in the film (screengrabbed below), De Niro’s Frank Sheeran is about 35, and Pesci’s Russell Bufalino, who was born in 1903, is about 52. I buy it:

    The de-aging was kind of eerie. I could detect a kind of higher definition and luminosity in the de-aged face of De Niro. It was also obvious that the younger looking faces were sitting on top of older -looking and -acting bodies. But I suspended my disbelief.
