(on working with Al Pacino) He’s so powerful. Everything about him, his voice, even on its lowest register, still radiates. He’s a complete perfectionist. You think he’s just a natural, but he works so hard. Every day, he was in the dressing room next to me and I’d hear him working on scenes for days-and constantly coming up with new ideas. Every scene, he wants 10 do 40 different ways. It’s amazing, this endless creativity, you don’t know where he gets it. How does he come up with so many ideas? It’s overwhelming. I’ll never forget being in the limo as Al was telling us stories about The Godfather (1972). Marty Brest and I kept looking at each other, like two little kids high-fiving. This is great!
Happy Birthday Chris! (26 June 1970-)
