Tonight, Toronto's highly prestigious International Film Festival (TIFF) hosted their 3rd annal gala. The gala featured none other than legendary actor, Al Pacino. At the gala, Pacino revealed that Michael was not his original choice of character when taking part in one of the best films of all-time, The Godfather:

Interesting to hear him say this, especially given the two characters' relationship. Pacino also spoke highly of one of his new films playing at the festival, Manglehorn:

Pacino will also star in Rain Man director Barry Livingston's new film, The Humbling (this movie will also debut at TIFF). We actually have the honour to attend the Manglehorn premiere, so be sure to stay tuned for a review of that coming soon!
