If you're planning a party to watch America's next World Cup game on Tuesday, here's one thing you might try adding to the mix: Robert De Niro. It seems the actor was in Brooklyn filming a movie today, but there was no way he was missing the afternoon match against Germany, explains Business Insider. The film crew got wind of a nearby house having a viewing party, and the hosts soon had an Oscar winner in their midst. Failing that, Warner Bros. was ready to hook up a portable satellite dish on an apartment building and run a cable to the street. BI's Hunter Walker even has the email seeking permission.
