Al Pacino, born Alfredo James Pacino is an American Actor of both stage and screen with an estimated net worth of $135 million. Pacino was born on April 25th 1940 in East Harlem Manhattan. Pacino's parents divorced at a young age forcing him and his mother to move in with his grandparents. Pacino was not very pleased in school either yet he found solace in school plays.

Luck would come in the form of renowned acting coach Lee Strasberg who helped Pacino get more clout as an actor. This newfound respect led to him landing parts in numerous stage and television roles.
He made his film debut in 1969 in the film "Me, Natalie". He would soon follow it up with "The Panic in Needle Park". This gained him enough attention that Francis Ford Coppola casted him in the role of Michael Corleon. The part would lead him to his first Oscar nomination. Pacino would go on to star in such classics as "Serpico", "And Justice for all", and "Dog Day Afternoon".
The eighties did not treat Pacino as well as the 70's. But something very special and iconic did come out of the time… the role of Tony Montana in "Scarface". The films though critically panned was a box office success and would go onto become the thing of legend. Since Scarface Pacino has gone onto to star in films such as "Dick Tracey", "Scent of a woman", "Any Given Sunday", and "Insomnia".
