Al Pacino is a total actor’s actor. Actually, he’s really an everybody’s actor. Let’s just agree that Al Pacino is the best, okay? After 40 years, he’s still one of the most influential actors working. He’s so influential that I can’t even think of anything he’s done in the last decade that’s been all that impressive or memorable, and it doesn’t matter. At all. He’s still a Hollywood god.
In addition to being one of those actors that every other actor looks up to, he’s also someone that every actor can (or thinks they can, or just wants to) do an impression of. Vanity Fair made this supercut of Pacino impressions and tributes during TIFF interviews. Benedict Cumberbatch’s aspirate h’s on that hoo-hah is definitely the best-worst of them all.
Nick Kroll, you’re a close second.
