Watch: The Clash Cameo In 'The King Of Comedy' Plus Martin Scorsese Talks 'Lawrence Of Arabia'

Martin Scorsese turns 70 on Friday, and the man has never been busier. In the midst of a multitude of projects, he's currently shooting his next feature, "The Wolf Of Wall Street," but of course, he took some time out recently to talk about David Lean's masterpiece, "Lawrence Of Arabia," as it arrives in a brand new 4-disc set today (get that Christmas shopping done early, folks). But before we jump into that, let's rewind the clock slightly.

Martin Scorsese turns 70 on Friday, and the man has never been busier. In the midst of a multitude of projects, he's currently shooting his next feature, "The Wolf Of Wall Street," but of course, he took some time out recently to talk about David Lean's masterpiece, "Lawrence Of Arabia," as it arrives in a brand new 4-disc set today (get that Christmas shopping done early, folks). But before we jump into that, let's rewind the clock slightly.

It's hard to believe, but it's been thirty years since Scorsese dropped "The King Of Comedy," a movie that still remains a bit underrated in his canon. And we have to admit, either we missed it or just didn't know, but The Clash cameoed ever so briefly in the film. Look closely and you'll see Mick Jones, Joe Strummer and Paul Simonon (plus associates like manager Kosmo Vinyl, singers Ellen Foley and Pearl Harbour, and director Don Letts) all hanging in the background, snarling their way through a scene. Thanks to the interwebs, you can take a closer look below.

Meanwhile, as if you need convincing of its greatness, a couple of clips of Martin Scorsese talking about "Lawrence Of Arabia" from the set's extras are below. This is probably the best the movie is ever going to look, so put it on your list for Santa (or buy it for yourself). Watch below. [Diffuser/ET/Huffington Post]
