MOVIES OK, BUT THEATER IS BETTER, PACINO SAYS
Al Pacino says movies are OK, but he'd rather do it on the stage.
"Movies are wonderful. I love seeing them. But they're not as much fun to do for me," he said in this Sunday's Los Angeles Times. "It's a very fragmented existence. You may only shoot a minute a day."
Pacino is making his Los Angeles theater debut at 59. He appears in Eugene O'Neill's "Hughie," running through July 25 at the Mark Taper Forum.
Pacino plays a gambler chatting with a night clerk (Paul Benedict) at a seedy hotel. The two won critical praise when they did the show in 1996 in New York.
