Al Pacino - Biography, Filmography, Video


Al Pacino Biography:

Name:
Al Pacino
Date of Birth:
April 25, 1940
Place of Birth:
South Bronx, New York City, New York

Alfredo Pacino was born to Salvatore and Rose Pacino in East Harlem. At the age of two, he quickly learned the drama of married life when his parents divorced. Al and his mother moved to his grandparents' house, where most of his days were spent entertaining his grandmother.
At fourteen, Al went to the High School of the Performing Arts, but his academic record was not good enough to keep him there. So he spent the next several years working odd jobs ranging from mail deliverer to an usher in the theatre.
Fed up of odd jobs, Pacino began taking acting lessons under drama coach Charles Laughton's wing at the Herbert Berghof Studio, until he was finally accepted to the famed Actors Studio.
After a couple of off-Broadway productions, Pacino starred in Me, Natalie and The Panic in Needle Park where he astounded critics. After his superb performance, Pacino was offered the role of Michael Corleone in Coppola's The Godfather. His performance earned him instant stardom and an Oscar nomination for Best Supporting Actor. He soon followed with strong performances in Serpico, The Basic Training of Pavlo Hummel, The Godfather II , American Buffalo, The Godfather, Part III, Dog Day Afternoon, Scarface, Carlito's Way, Frankie and Johnny, The Devil's Advocate and Sea of Love. Along the way, Pacino had his share of movie flops such as Bobby Deerfield and Cruising.
In 1999, Pacino turned up a brilliant performance in The Insider and Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday. He's also expected to direct Amedeo Modigliani and produce The Cincinnati Kid, while his next roles include Insomnia, Simone and Gigli.
