popular and greatest hollywood actor al pacino

If someone doesn’t know Al Pacino, then the person doesn’t know about Hollywood either. He was born as Alfredo James Pacino on 25th April 1940. He is an American stage and film actor as well as a director. He is known for playing roles of mobsters, including Michael Corleone in The Godfather trilogy, Alphonse “Big Boy” Caprice in Dick Tracy, Tony Montana in Scarface and Carlito Brigante in Carlito’s Way, though he has also appeared several times on the other side of the law — as a police officer, detective and a lawyer.

In 1992, he played the role of a blind, medically retired army officer, Frank Slade. It is a remake of the Italian movie Profumo Di Donna but won critical acclaim as well as viewer’s recognition. The movie won him the Oscar for best actor which was his 8th nomination for the title. The film also won three major awards at the Golden Globe Awards: Best Adapted Screenplay, Best Actor and Best Motion Picture – Drama.

It was the 1971 film The Panic in Needle Park, in which he played a heroin addict that brought Pacino to the attention of director Francis Ford Coppola. Pacino was given the role of Michael Corleone in The Godfather in 1972, which was a major breakthrough in his career. Although he has never married, Pacino has three children from two of his many relationships.

Pacino’s charm lies in the adaption of different characters. Newsweek stated that

“He [Pacino] can play small as rivetingly as he can play big, that he can implode as well as explode”
