    Aaron Rupar‏Verified account@atrupar Trump's plan to prevent young people from using drugs is to run government ads urging them not to try them. Hard to believe nobody has thought of that before.

    Happy Birthday to...

    ...Al Pacino (born Alfredo James Pacino on April 25, 1940), the veteran actor who needs only a Grammy to become the 16th person to win all four major entertainment awards. He has been nominated eight times for Academy Awards. His recognized roles and movies are as follows (Oscar win in bold): Michael Corleone in "The Godfatherl" (1972). Best Supporting Actor. Frank Serpico in "Serpico" (1973). Best Actor. Michael Corleone in "The Godfather Part II" (1974). Best Actor. Sonny Wortzik in "Dog Day Afternoon" (1975). Best Actor. Arthur Kirkland in "...and justice for all." (1979). Best Actor. Big Boy Caprice in "Dick Tracy" (1990). Best Supporting Actor. Ricky Roma in "Glengarry Glen Ross" (1992). Best Supporting Actor. Lt. Col. Frank Slade in "Scent of a Woman" (1992). Best Actor. One of his first films was the 1971 drama "The Panic in Needle Park," in which he and actress Kitty Winn played a couple coping with heroin addiction on Manhattan's Upper West Side. Directed by Jerry Schatzberg, the movie's screenplay was adapted by Joan Didion and John Gregory Dunne from the 1966 novel by James Mills. Winn, who later played the tutor of the possessed preteen girl Regan MacNeil in "The Exorcist," won the Best Actress Award at the 1971 Cannes Film Festival for her performance. Pacino became a star and received a Best Supporting Actor nomination for his performance in "The Godfather," Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 Best Picture-winning masterpiece about the dark side of the American dream. Although his character Michael Corleone was never supposed to be involved in his mob family's business, he proposed a bold and brilliant plan for revenge against its enemies. The 1973 drama "Scarecrow," a road trip tale that reunited Pacino with director Schatzberg, shared the 1973 Grand Prix (Grand Prize) award at the Cannes Film Festival (the other winner was the British drama "The Hireling"). The American film was the story of two hitchhikers -- ex-con Max Millan (Hackman) and a former seaman named Francis Lionel "Lion" Delbuchi (Pacino) -- who became fast friends on a cross-country journey that began in Bakersfield, California. Their destination was Pittsburgh, where Max hoped to start a carwash business with Lion. Pacino received his first Best Actor Oscar nomination for "Serpico" (1973) -- the true story of the New York plainclothes police officer Frank Serpico, who blew the whistle on widespread corruption in the NYPD. In the American Film Institute's 2003 survey of the top heroes and villains in movie history, Serpico was the No. 40 hero. "Pacino played Serpico better than I did," the real Serpico told a reporter in 2012. "The Godfather Part II" (1974) was the first sequel to a Best Picture winner to receive the top Oscar, too. It recounted the rise of the young Vito Corleone (Robert De Niro) and focused on Michael Corleone's bid to keep his crime family intact during the 1950s. Based on a true story about a bizarre bank robbery, Sidney Lumet's 1975 drama "Dog Day Afternoon" won a Best Original Screenplay Oscar for Frank Pierson. It also earned five other Academy Award nominations, including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actor (Pacino), Best Supporting Actor (Chris Sarandon) and Best Film Editing (Dede Allen). Pacino starred as Sonny Wortzik, the ringleader of a botched attempt to rob a Brooklyn bank. When the police arrived, the small-time heist turned into a hostage crisis and a media sensation. John Cazale (1935-1978) played Sonny's cohort Sal Naturale. In a memorable scene, Sonny -- clutching a white handkerchief while outside the bank, played to a crowd of spectators and television cameras during a verbal confrontation with police. The scene produced what the American Film Institute ranked in 2005 as the 86th greatest movie quote of all time. On June 7, 2007, Pacino became the 35th recipient of the American Film Institute's Life Achievement Award. He was presented the honor by Sean Penn, his co-star in the 1993 drama "Carlito's Way." In December 2016, Pacino was recognized for his career excellence at the annual Kennedy Center Honors in Washington, D.C. Also honored: the singer-songwriter James Taylor, the gospel/soul singer Mavis Staples, the Argentine pianist Martha Argerich and the rock band The Eagles. Martin Scorsese's upcoming drama "The Irishman" stars Pacino as Jimmy Hoffa and De Niro as Frank Sheeran, the hitman who claimed to have liquidated the powerful boss of the Teamsters Union in 1975. The Netflix production, said to cost more than $140 million, is based on Charles Brandt's 2003 book "I Heard You Paint Houses: Frank 'The Irishman' Sheeran & Closing the Case on Jimmy Hoffa." The film, which also stars Harvey Keitel, Joe Pesci, Anna Paquin, Bobby Cannavale, Ray Romano and Jesse Plemons, will likely get a theatrical release to qualify it for Academy Awards consideration.
