Al Pacino Admits he was a fan of Archie Comics
Al Pacino, the man who recently won our hearts over in “The Irishman” has appeared in his first-ever TV series. This is by far the most different take in his 50-year acting career. The Amazon’s series “Hunters” stars Al Pacino, Logan Lerman, Josh Radnor among others.
Al Pacino’s old-time thing
He has been doing many interviews for the series’ promotion. While talking to USA Today, Archie Comics came up. And guess what? Our favorite actor was also a fan, just like us. Reminiscing, he told the interviewer he was crazy about them. Gathering up his friends he would beg them to act out the lines with him. Always was an actor, huh?
In his new series, set in 1977, he is a Holocaust survivor who is on a mission to weed out Nazis from New York. Hitler loyalists are hiding and planning a Fourth Reich in the U.S. He leads a group of individuals to track down the Nazis. Not only that, but historical facts are also shown in the form of flashbacks from World War II and the migration of the Nazi torturers. David Weil, the show’s creator said that Al Pacino adopted an eastern European accent. Although Al Pacino is not Jewish, he portrayed his role so perfectly that he seemed like one to David. He chose Logan Lerman for a lead because of his acting talent and the fact that he is Jewish.
When asked about his experience working in a series, he said:
This is different than anything I’ve done in television. You get to know people, Logan and others in the cast, you work together for months and months and you get closer. It’s a warmer environment.
