Birthday Boy

Here's wishing a Happy Birthday to my favorite actor, Al Pacino, who turns 66 today.

Alfred James Pacino started his career in theater and hit instant stardom with his oscar nominated role in the Godfather(1972). He has been nominated for an oscar numerous times, for Serpico(1973), Godfather II(1974), Dog Day Afternoon(1975), (damn ! three years in a row) ...And Justice For All (1979), Glengarry Glen Rose(1992),Heat(1995) and The Insider(1999). He won an oscar for his brilliant portrayal of a blind war veteran looking to fulfill his final wishes in life in one of my favorite movies, Scent of a Woman(1992).

Al Pacino is definitely one of the most brilliant and celebrated actors Hollywood has produced. He doesn't have any intention of stopping making movies and after watching him recently in the Recruit and Merchant of Venice, I definitely can't wait to watch him on the screen soon.
