Robert De Niro is brimming with a grin from ear-to-ear for good reason!
Organizers for the tony 64th Annual "Cannes Film Festival" - which launches in May on the exotic French Riviera - have invited the respected thespian to head up the Jury Panel for a third time.
De Niro - starring in the comedy - "The Little Flockers" (currently in wide release around the country) last took on the coveted duties twice in the heady 80's.
Film buffs may recall that De Niro's break-out thriller - Taxi Driver - won the Palme d'or in 1976.
Break a leg, Bobby!
