Robert De Niro Just Crashed Someone's World Cup Party in Brooklyn

Robert De Niro, in town filming his forthcoming movie The Intern, reportedly just joined some unsuspecting World Cup fans at their home in Cobble Hill, Brooklyn to watch the U.S.-Germany match.

Business Insider reports that Warner Bros. initially emailed a different residence in the neighborhood to ask whether De Niro could stop by and catch the game:

"Our lead actor, Robert DeNiro, would very much like to watch the World Cup game, today at 12p," the email said. "Would it be possible to place a small portable satellite on the building rooftop ASAP and run a cable to the street to help facilitate this request?"

Those people were denied the legendary actor's presence, however, when he found a World Cup party already in progress. The unnamed resident told BI: "We got another email from a neighbor saying he talked to the crew and apparently he found a house of people watching it and joined them."
