In the year 1972, Al Pacino played the character of Michael Corleone in the film The Godfather. The actor was lauded for his performance and also went on to earn his first Oscar nomination. But as per reports, the studio did not want Al Pacino to play the role of Michael Corleone as he was too “screwy” and “intense” for the character, but later agreed on him doing the film.
After entertaining fans in the first part, Al Pacino once again went on to woo fans with his role in the second part of the film. Al Pacino was once again nominated at the Academy Awards but lost the award to Art Carney for Harry and Tonto.
