(Newser) – 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.

He really wanted to see that game. When he interviews, he seems quite shy.

The younger Di Nero would never do this. He was very reserved and insular. He seems to have gotten more human in his mature years and more comfortable with himself in regards to the rest of the world.

As long as he brings beer, he is welcome anytime.
