At the opening for the one-man show “A Bronx Tale,” starring Chazz Palminteri, OK! caught up with a mixed bag of Hollywood stars, including Harvey Keitel and Fran Drescher.

When OK! asked Harvey what he’s up to these days, he said, “The end of January I’ll be at Carnegie Hall in Jerry Springer the Opera.” OK! was curious to know what it was like shooting the sequel to National Treasure. A glib Harvey responded, “It’s fine.”

Meanwhile, onetime Sopranos star Joe Pantoliano gushed on the ticket line about his friend Chazz's show. “It’s nostalgic, and Chazz is the greatest storyteller on Earth!”

Rocco DiSpirito, who is currently in this week’s issue of OK!,

shared that he loved his feature. “It was great!” he said. When asked

what else he’s up to these days, he said, “I’m working on a TV show

reality, but let’s say it’s unscripted, like most cooking shows.”

Before the night was over, Robert De Niro showed up to catch pal Chazz’s show, but didn’t do press. The Nanny

star Fran Drescher, who now devotes her time to raising cancer

awareness, gave some advice to women fighting the disease. “Learn

everything, become better partners with your physicians, take control

of your body," she said. "And know that sometimes the best gifts come

in the ugliest packages!”
