Alfredo "Al" Pacino (born April 25, 1940) is one of the greatest actors in American film history. Despite a difficult childhood in an impoverished neighborhood, he pursued his dream of becoming an actor and was almost instantly recognized as a natural. After taking roles of varying prominence in several on- and off-Broadway plays, he caught the eye of Creator/FrancisFordCoppola while on the set of the 1971 film ''The Panic at Needle Park''. Coppola fought tooth and nail to get Pacino in the role of [[Film/TheGodfather Michael Corleone]]; competitors for the role included Creator/RobertDeNiro (who went on to play Michael's father in ''Part 2''), Creator/JackNicholson, and Creator/DustinHoffman. Al Pacino was successful, and the rest is history.
