I must say Hoo-Hah 5 times a day. Pacino has been in some pretty big time movies. The Godfathers, Scent of a Woman, Devil's Advocate, Serpico et al.
As far as I know, no one ever uttered the phrase "An Offer He Couldn't Refuse" before Al Pacino. That alone warrants a place in the coolest men on earth list.
John Travolta is pretty damn cool. And even he didn't make the list due to the evils of scientology. And as cool as he is he sat there in Saturday Night Fever wishing he was Al Pacino. If someone as cool as Travolta wishes he was Pacino, well then Pacino must be pretty damn cool.
I just remembered...or more accurately was reminded by imdb. He was friggin Scarface. Scarface taught me pretty much everything I needed to know about life: You need to have balls.
