That was NOT the original Tommy DeSimone that you showed a mugshot of. That was some fat guy. A simple google search could have got you the right one

Actually, Tommy got killed because when Henry and Jimmy got sent to prison, Paulie started having an affair with Karen..When Paulie went away for the contempt beef, Tommy tried to strong arm rape Karen, Paulie found out and dropped a dime to John Gotti, who was connected to the Gambino family ( Paulie, etc were connected to the Luchese family) People had suspicions that Tommy was involved in killing Batts and Jeroth, so when it was confirmed, a crew led by John Gotti snagged him...Tommy was not killed by a single shot to the head, Gotti went to work on Tommy, they found Tommy's remains in three trash bags along the east rive

Don't know why Warner Bros would've wanted to take the scene out where Tommy shot Spider as he did actually do that in real life .

another probably didnt know fact was that: Al Pacino turned down for the role of Jimmy Conway in this movie.

It would help if you actually did your research: that’s not a mugshot photo of Tommy DeSimone at 03:00. That’s a photo of Joe Iacobacci (Cleveland mafia, 1990s) “Now go home and get your f**ken shine-box!”

That meatball scene reminds me of my Italian grandmothers at Xmas... except its raviolis... she made the most amazing 100% authentic Italian Raviolis... It was always the hit of Xmas. And it was just like that, always very loud and boisterous at the Italian family, I mean you walked into the room and it was like a shouting match was going the whole time and laughter etc... my Dad and my Uncle ripping on each other, seeing who could out-class the one this year... the mirror opposite at my mom's mom, where it was quiet and you would only hear a glass or a fork go clink, clink... I have such great memories as a kid, too bad my adulthood sucks...

Another fun fact is the "funny guy" scene was mainly unscripted. You can even notice the extras laughing their butts off.

But doesn't the gun fall apart in Tommy's hand in the movie too? Also, the body of the real life Tommy was never found and is still missing to this day

Goodfellas factoid = the final court room scene was filmed in an actual court room. Since it was a real court they could only film at night. The black guy playing the judge was actually the night janitor. Scorsese let him play the role since he couldn't do hi job until they were done filming.
Nathaniel Greer (10 months ago)
A pretty good list but the single best piece of trivia about Goodfellas is that Fat Andy, who is only seen briefly during the introduction scene, was played by Lou Eppolito. Eppolito was a real life NYPD organized crime division cop and was working on the set as a technical advisor. Lou Eppolito and his parter were also paid hitmen who worked for the Lucchese Crime Family. Both are now in prison.

Another factoid: Robert DeNiro's tie required a specific knot that only Scorsese knew how to tie. So before shooting any scenes with Jimmy Conway, the director ran to the dressing room to fix up his tie.

Goodfellas is filled with characters who later went to star in shinebox

What I read was that Pauly knew Tommy had killed Billy Batts but kept it to himself until Karen Hill went to him and told him that Tommy had tried to rape her. Pauly then told the Gambinos that Tommy was responsible for killing Batts so they'd kill him.

3:00 That is not Tommy DeSimone. Here is he :https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thomas_DeSimone. He died at 28. So the guy in the photo from the video is way too old.
