    Martin Scorsese, Robert De Niro, and Joe Pesci reunite in new set photos captured during the shooting of The Irishman. Based on a book by Charles Brandt, The Irishman traces the life of real-life reputed mob hitman Frank Sheeran (De Niro), who among other things claimed to have been involved in the 1975 disappearance of Teamsters boss Jimmy Hoffa, a mystery that to this day remains unsolved (despite outrageous claims like his body being buried under the old Giants Stadium). Al Pacino is set to make his Scorsese debut playing Hoffa. The Irishman marks Martin Scorsese’s return to gangster film...

    The closing night of the Tribeca Film Festival brought together the cast from two of the most important and influential movies ever made: The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II. Led by the festival’s co-founder, Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, Diane Keaton, James Caan, Robert Duvall, and Talia Shire took the stage with their director, Francis Ford Coppola, to look back on the iconic films after they screened back to back for the audience. The discussion, which was led by director Taylor Hackford, focused mainly on the first film, which allowed De Niro — who only appeared in Part II...
  • Pacino: If I wasn’t an actor I’d probably be slinging hash

    Al Pacino has been acting for nearly half a century and during that time, he says he’s never really considered what other job he might be suited for—until now. Pacino says he thinks he’d be a good short order cook. He does have experience. Pacino played an ex-con who works in a diner in the 1991 film “Frankie and Johnny,” which was shot in a working eatery. “I could do this, be a short order cook,” he remembers thinking at the time. …
  • At 40 Years Old, 'The Godfather' Has a Profound and Complicated Legacy

    Once, it was thought of as the gangster movie to end all gangster movies. Before he played Don Corleone, Marlon Brando had been all but written off after several flops. But of course that's exactly what "The Godfather," which opened in New Jersey 40 years ago this Saturday, was not. Instead, it was the gangster movie that began all gangster movies, at least as we know them now: not just its own sequels, "The Godfather: Part II" and "The Godfather: Part III," but also "Goodfellas," "Donnie Brasco," "Analyze This," "Scarface," "The Freshman," "Prizzi's Honor" and "Married to the Mob," not...

    Al Pacino has told how he was nearly fired from his iconic role as Michael Corleone in The Godfather and said he hasn't defeated his alcoholism, but 'just doesn't drink'. The 70-year-old Oscar winner also told CNN's Larry King how Marlon Brando's support helped keep him in the career-making Godfather film. Talking about working with Brando and nearly being fired from The Godfather, he said, 'Brando was a source of inspiration. 'It was unnerving playing with him in Godfather. But he was good to me. He was sensitive to me. 'They thought I was wrong for Michael and they were...

    Al Pacino Wins Emmy Award for Movie on Euthanasia Advocate Jack Kevorkian Hollywood, CA -- In another example of the Hollywood elite glorifying those actors and films that promote anti-life values, Al Pacino won an Emmy Award for his portrayal of Jack Kevorkian in the HBO film, "You Don't Know Jack." Pacino portrayed the assisted suicide crusader who was eventually jailed for killing a disabled man in a televised euthanasia.
  • The Politically Incorrect Americanism of (Jessica) Alba, Pacino, and Arnold

    Hablas Espanol? Jessica Alba doesn’t. Is there anything wrong with that? Apparently so. The third-generation American and actress is under fire this week from fellow Latinos for comments she made to Para Todos magazine: Alba is my last name and I'm proud of that. But that's it. My grandparents were born in California, the same as my parents, and though I may be proud of my last name, I'm American. Throughout my whole life, I've never felt connected to one particular race or heritage, nor did I feel accepted by any. If you break it down, I'm less Latina than...
