Robert De Niro feels freer doing comedy

Saturday, December 18, 2010

WASHINGTON - Robert De Niro has admitted that he feels freer doing comedy roles as he can be ‘broad’ and have fun.

The veteran actor reprises his role as grumpy father-in-law Jack Byrnes in ‘The Little Fockers’ and said he loved the chance to return to the movie series for the third time because it is so much fun.

“We have fun. I enjoy it a lot. When you’re doing comedy I have less restrictions or constrictions. You can cut something out or the director will say to try something else, you can be broad, there’s more room for just having fun,” Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

De Niro also added that he was delighted his old friend Harvey Keitel was cast in the film.

He added: “It seemed like a good thing for Harvey to be in it, everyone was okay with it. When you have different people with different working styles sometimes you have to get around that stuff and Harvey is one of my oldest, dearest friends. We had to get all that working, but it was good. It was terrific.” (ANI)
