Spike celebrates 'Goodfellas' anniversary

Robert De Niro, Ray Liotta attending Guy's Choice Awards

NEW YORK -- Spike TV is bringing together Robert De Niro and Ray Liotta to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the mob classic "Goodfellas."

The two stars will be at Spike's fourth annual Guy's Choice Awards, to be televised June 20.

Event producer Casey Patterson says "Goodfellas" is considered a touchstone for Spike's target audience of 18- to 34-year-old men. Spike is still working on getting cast member Joe Pesci to attend.

Filmmaker Martin Scorsese will be in Europe and won't be at the show's taping in Culver City, Calif., on Saturday.

Patterson calls the film "a classic story, shot in a way that makes it really, really sexy."
