Deadline reporter and tasty pasta dish Nancy Tartaglione scored a sit-down interview with esteemed actor Al Pacino at the Venice Film Festival today, and she used the opportunity to engage in some hypothetical fan casting when she asked Pacino if he'd star in the Guardians Galaxy sequel or another Marvel movie. Pacino responded:
I would do anything that I could understand in terms of how I fit in it. And you know, of course if I could fit in it. Anything’s possible. You know, I did Dick Tracy and I got an Oscar nomination, so come on. I mean, what can I say?
I wonder if Pacino slips references to his various award wins and nominations into every conversation."Hey Al, how are you doing?" "Well, I was nominated for Best Supporting Actor for Glengarry Glen Ross, so I mean, what can I say, not bad, you know?" "Mr. Pacino, how do you take your coffee?" "Did you know I won the Golden Globe for Serpico? I'm sorry, what were we talking about?" If I were him, that's what I'd do.
Anyway, Pacino had some praise for Guardians as well. Having previously called it "the most entertaining, inventive, beautiful film," Pacino elaborated in the interview:
It was not something I would readily go see, but my kids got me to go, and one has to draw the line at where prejudice starts and where it ends — that was good stuff! I recognized the ingenious stuff they were doing; the invention, the attractiveness of the way they were performing it. It had Shakespearian feeling to it at times. I was caught up in the big screen, the great sound…
We expect the
shameless clickbaiters reputable journalists over at sites like ComicBook.com to have fifteen articles up speculating on who Pacino will be cast as by noon tomorrow, with a follow-up twenty-five articles claiming Joseph Gordon Levitt will join the movie as his sidekick by the end of the day. Of course, since roughly 1998, Pacino will pretty much accept any role no matter how hackneyed and terrible, so Marvel should just put a script in front of him ASAP and seal the deal before DC does. Al Pacino as an overacting Adam Warlock? Yes please!
