Actor Al Pacino

Al Pacino biography

Al Pacino was born to Salvatore and Rose Pacino in East Harlem, New York, USA.

At age two, he 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 Pacino 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 following years working odd jobs ranging from mail deliverer to an usher in the theatre.

Fed up with odd jobs, Al Pacino began taking acting lessons under drama coach Charles Laughton's wing at the Herbert Berghof Studio until he was 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 performance, Pacino was offered the role of Michael Corleone in Coppola's The Godfather. His performance earned him an Oscar for Best Supporting Actor.

He soon followed with solid 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, Al Pacino performed brilliantly in The Insider and Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday. He also directs Amedeo Modigliani and produces The Cincinnati Kid, while his following roles include Insomnia, Simone, and Gigli.
