Although David O. Russell’s American Hustle, loosely based on the ABSCAM sting of the 1970s, didn’t take home any Academy Awards (the film was nominated 10 times), people are still talking about the film (and the hair, and the cleavage). The movie arrives on Blu-ray March 18, which means it’s time to see the deleted scenes.
In these clips, we have Jeremy Renner's mayor of Camden, New Jersey, Carmine Polito (based on real-life mayor Angelo Errichetti), channeling his inner disco king and losing his cool on the streets in “the ghetto.” While Renner holds his own, it’s hard to take our eyes of Christian Bale’s hysterically coiffed convicted swindler, Irving Rosenfeld (based on real-life Melvin Weinberg).
The film clocks in at over two hours long, but if you’re itching for more brash shenanigans, Jersey style, give the Blu-ray a test drive with these extras. [Spotted via JoBlo]
