al-pacino

(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!

Johnny Depp on David Letterman show:

-He'a a legend, He’s Al Pacino. He’s an amazing actor certainty but, you know, the one thing I didn’t really  know about Pacino, prior to the shooting was that he’s certifiably insane.
-Oh really, you’ve seen the paperwork apparently. How does that manifests itself?
-He has a joke, he likes to tell
-He likes to tell joke?
-Oh yes, he likes to tell jokes and he liked tell me this one specific joke over and over. And I really didn’t understand it.
-You didn’t get the joke.
-I did’t get the joke.
-And he thought it was your problem that you didn’t get the joke.
-Yeah absolutely, he definitely thought it was my problem.
-So he keeps wearing you down with the same joke.
-He flicked at it upon me and I could feel like, you know, IQ points dropping.
-The greater the pressure, the dumper you feel. Did you ever understand the joke?
-I finally figured it out yeah.
-Do you remember the joke?
- Yeah. He used to lean over and go “A skeleton goes into a bar and orders a beer and a mop.” But I mean on a loop.
-Over and over again. I must say, you kind of expect a little more from Al Pacino. I’m kind of on your side here. I get it but I don’t want to admit that I get it.
