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, which tapes Saturday for airing on June 20.

Event producer Casey Patterson says “Goodfellas” is considered a touchstone for Spike’s target audience of 18- to 34-year-old men.

The network also was working to get cast member Joe Pesci to attend. Filmmaker Martin Scorcese will be in Europe.

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

Shoring up Sandy

Sandra Bullock is coming to the MTV Movie Awards.

The 45-year-old actress will attend Sunday’s ceremony to accept the MTV Generation Award, its highest honor.

Bullock is the first woman to receive the award. Past recipients include Tom Cruise, Ben Stiller, Adam Sandler, Mike Myers and Jim Carrey.

The Oscar winner has kept a low profile since her split from husband Jesse James amid reports of his infidelity.

The street where he lives

“Avenue Q” plans to keep its character based on Gary Coleman, even after his death.

The stage show about twentysomething New Yorkers, featuring both humans and puppets, won three 2004 Tony Awards, including best musical.

It’s now running off-Broadway. A touring version played Spokane in February.

The Coleman character is a child star who works as a building superintendent.
