'Goodfellas' Cast Reunites for 25th Anniversary, Shares Secrets From Set

Which cast member almost quit!?

— -- The cast of "Goodfellas" reunited on Saturday night at the Tribeca Film Festival and the movie's 25th anniversary.

Entertainment Weekly was in attendance and shared some insight from the cast after a quarter of a century.

First, Pileggi said after he wrote the book "Wiseguy," the inspiration for the film, Scorsese tried again and again to reach him about making a movie, but Pileggi thought it was a joke from a co-worker.

Finally, Sorvino said he almost quit the movie. He didn't like all the aspects of his character Paulie. So he told his manager before production began that he wanted to quit. He eventually changed his mind and everything else is cinematic history.
