Robert De Niro to head Cannes jury

Robert De Niro has been named president of the jury for the 64th Cannes Film Festival in May. “The Cannes Film Festival is a rare opportunity for me, as it is one of the oldest and one of the best in the world,” De Niro said in a statement. “Having served as president of the jury in the 80s twice, I know this isn’t an easy task for me or my fellow jury members, but I’m very honored and happy to head the jury for this year’s … Festival.”

It’s just another honor for De Niro, who will receive the Golden Globe’s Cecil B. DeMille Award later this month.

    I know he’s a great actor but the last decade of his career would seem to indicate he doesn’t know much about great filmmaking. And after his second stint hosting SNL, they better hope his duties don’t include reading off cue cards…lol!
