    I think he's tied with Deniro and Howard Stern

    Elvis had his drugged out and fat phase which lead to his death. Al has his "screaming and yelling" in every scene phase.

    He's terrific.

    I was just watching him in Meet the Fockers.

    there's nothing subtle or realistic about the way pacino plays his parts. i can't watch him.

    duvall and deniro are in a different class...they're brilliant (although deniro has fallen recently by taking parts beneath his ability).

    Never really rated him, he plays one type of character well but anything else sort of hacky. I already know people will slate this but he is one of those actors who are great because someone else said they were

    The Pacino yelling and screaming thing, with his cutsy little facial expressions, started sometime. I don't know when exactly. Was it Dick Tracy?

    A lot of actors have their "thing." I dig Robert Duvall but he does a head-jig thing with his head while keeping his mouth slightly open in just about everything he does.

    He did that jig/mouth thing all through Lonesome Dove.

    There are some things Nicholson has done extremely well. Chinatown, As Good as it Gets, etc.

    But Batman? Ooofah.

    Someone sent me a copy of DeNiro's new movie with John Travolta that just came out, where Travolta plays a Bosnian soldier seeking revenge on DeNiro, also a veteran (a movie that nobody asked for, believe me).....it seems that these older actors just take what ever they can that pays good just for a job (except for Duvall, it seems he doesn't work unless its something worth doing)..

    I love Duvall , he is by far and away one of the best of all time.

    I agree he's ONE OF the greatest..... along with Deniro...Nickolson (great in About Schmidt & As Good as it gets....& my favorite Nickolson film Somethings Gotta Give) Dustin Hoffman one of the greatest!
    Can't rule out Tom Cruise....Born on the 4th of July....Jerry Mcguire....War of the Worlds...so many great films!!
    LOL...Howard Stern! yep...greatest (Radio) actor ever! like BaBabooey (and Beth whenever she's defending her man) "Howard is sooooo NOT the person you hear on air...that's ACTING" :rolleye: spare us.

    Anfkid...Al Pacino's Baby....funniest bit ever!!!

    peace & love
