Arguably two of the most talented actors of their generation, De Niro and Pacino are responsible for countless classics of American cinema including The Godfather films, Raging Bull, Taxi Driver, The Deer Hunter, Goodfellas, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, Scarface, and Scent of a Woman. They have three Academy Awards between them and have been nominated twelve times.
Besides The Godfather: Part II, they have appeared in two other films together – Righteous Kill and the cult classic, Heat. They have recently wrapped production on their latest collaboration, The Irishman with Pacino playing Jimmy Hoffa and De Niro playing his reputed assassin, Frank Sheeran. The film was directed by Martin Scorsese, co-stars Joe Pesci, and is due to be released next year.
