Watch: Martin Scorsese's Cameo In Bertrand Tavernier's 'Round Midnight'

Here's a bit of an '80s rewind for you to start your week. While Martin Scorsese is no stranger to popping up in the front of the camera from time to time, the appearances are usually brief, but here's a look at something a little meatier. The director took a very small part in Bertrand Tavernier's 1986 film "Round Midnight." The 1950s-set film stars jazz legend Dexter Gordon as a fading musician who heads to Paris in a last attempt to revitalize his career in the face of alcoholism and personal woes. Scorsese plays a crooked former New York City club manager whose good intentions aren't what they seem. Jazz heads should take note that Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Freddie Hubbard and more make appearances.
