Juggling in Movies

Casino (1995)

[Robert De Niro, Sharon Stone, Joe Pesci, James Woods, Don Rickles]

Sam 'Ace' Rothstein, a mob-connected casino operator in Las Vegas, attempts a civilized lifestyle with his money-conditional wife, Ginger. Nicky Santoro, a boyhood friend of Ace and now a Made-Man of the Mafia, arrives in town with an ambitious agenda of his own that soon disrupts Ace's life. Before long, Ginger and her long-time leeching lover Lester, along with Nicky's mistakes, cause problems.

Robert De Niro juggles three white balls for about 15 catches, using many edits to make it look like he was juggling for a while, though he is only shown making a few throws in each edit. The scene ends with him chasing the balls around the Las Vegas stage he is on. Listed in the credits as a juggler is the excellent professional Gil Dova, who was likely only used to teach De Niro to juggle.
