In a once-in-a-lifetime appearance, three Hollywood icons joined our audience at last night’s closing night screening of ‘The King of Comedy,’ ending a memorable #TFF2013 with an unforgettable night.
Known for its foresight into the reality television culture, The King of Comedy is one of those now-classic films that didn’t seem to get the love it deserved upon its original release. Last night, however, it got its due. At the screening of the newly restored 30th anniversary print, Martin Scorsese and Tribeca’s own Robert De Niro celebrated the film’s legacy, along with a special appearance by Jerry Lewis.
Stay tuned for video from this amazing night.

Earlier this month, news broke that CNN was looking to relaunch Crossfire, the famous debate show that pitted two pundits -- one liberal, one conservative -- against one another on the political issues of the day.
Sources now tell POLITICO that the network is in discussions with former Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich and former Obama deputy campaign manager Stephanie Cutter about roles on the show.
"They are talking to Cutter and to Gingrich," a source familiar with the discussions said. "[Cutter] is in discussions; Newt is in discussions too," another source confirmed.
Spokespeople with CNN did not respond to a request for comment regarding the news. Both Cutter and a Gingrich spokesperson did not respond to emails requesting confirmation.
Should the talks go through, it is unclear whether the former House Speaker and the former Obama campaign staffer would go head-to-head on a regular basis, or whether they would be part of a rotating cast of co-hosts.
TV Newser reported and POLITICO confirmed this month that CNN president Jeff Zucker was looking to revamp the show, which ran from 1982 to 2005 and features an evolving cast of partisan pundits, including Tom Braden, Michael Kinsley, Geraldine Ferraro, Bill Press and James Carville (on the left) and Pat Buchanan, Robert Novak, John Sununu, and Mary Matalin (on the right).
