    It's a tough choice, but I'd have to go w/ DeNiro. Pacino overdoes it sometimes.

    I don't think this one's even going to be close.

    They both appear to be affected to a ridiculous degree in real life, but at least De Niro still retains the ability to occasionally portray a relatively normal human being in a semi-believable way on the screen.

    Pacino doesn't merely chew the scenery in his film roles -he swallows it whole.

    I love Pacino so much.
    However.

    This one is still a no brainer.

    Yes - I'm with you in this.

    I love watching DeNiro on screen but he's really the same character in all his movies. Even going back to Brazil or Raging Bull - he's .... Well he's Bobby D. Which is great - he's fun to watch

    But if you are comparing ability to stretch into different roles - ya gotta go with Pacino. Yes - most of the time he's playing the same Character too - but look at a young Michael Corleone vs the character he played in Donny Brasco

    So wrt play different characters - the win goes to Pacino


    But there are other actors who are even better at being believable in different roles. Sean Penn is a great example.

    I have to go with Pacino simply because he was oddly sexy in Sea of Love.

    have you ever seen Pacino on stage? No one does Mamet's works more justice

    Excellent point.
    And of course he was panty-dropping gorgeous in The Godfather.
