Iconic Little Fockers Star to Head Cannes Jury

denirosnlfake120.jpgCongratulations to Robert De Niro, who was announced this morning as the jury president for this year's edition of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival. The selection is the latest paths-crossing of the festival and the legendary actor, who has appeared in two Palme d'Or winners (Taxi Driver and The Mission) and will reportedly be recognized this year for his own fest-organizing acumen at Tribeca. These deliberations will be awesome: "Well, I don't know, Bob, I really liked Tree of Life." "Jesus, Deneuve, we were doing deeper impressionism 40 years ago..." So on, so forth. [Variety]
