Gary Oldman Hits Joe Pesci

One of the most entertaining anecdotes to come out of our Evening With Gary Oldman a couple weeks ago was Oldman's story about his "JFK" co-star Joe Pesci. Oldman, who I learned over the course of a week with the gentleman, is actually a master mimic. He does a flawless Michael Caine and admits he based the voice of his "Hannibal" character Mason Verger on author Thomas Harris. In the above clip, he does his best Pesci, which he admits is "an easy one." Oldman is currently on screens doing amazing work as spy George Smiley in "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and even though he failed to get a nomination from SAG or the Golden Globes, I believe he can still snag an Oscar nom for his work.

After the jump, more videos of Oldman talking about "Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy" and reveals his most difficult role.
