Jon Stewart's 'Goodfellas' spoof a highlight of final 'Daily Show'
Martin Scorsese is going to sue somebody.
Jon Stewart is one of the world’s biggest Goodfellas fans — he even hosted an anniversary reunion of the cast at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival — so it should have come as no surprise that Stewart referenced the show one last time as host of The Daily Show.
During Thursday’s farewell episode, Stewart introduced the audience to his support staff on the show via a montage that mimicked the famed Copacabana sequence from Martin Scorsese’s 1990 classic. He even used the same song — The Crystals’ “Then He Kissed Me” — and scored a cameo appearance from Scorsese himself (“You’re going to hear from my lawyers, and soon”).
