Personal Quote:

[on one's career] I think that the idea of resurgence is wonderful. But basically I think it's just luck. Also, if you start to say, 'How about if I made a movie with this person who is really a good director?' or 'How about if I did a movie about something that I feel I've got something to say about?' These things happen and I feel you're lucky when it happens. See more »

Trivia:

He was rejected repeatedly by studio heads while auditioning for the role of Michael Corleone in The Godfather (1972), but Francis Ford Coppola fought for him. This film was shot briskly because both the director and the leading actor were in constant fear of being fired. Ironically, this turned out to be a breakthrough for both. See more »
