Al Pacino

Baz from The Daily Mail reports that Hollywood film actor and Oscar winnerAl Pacino will star in a West End production of Salome, by Oscar Wilde, in 2016. Pacino has previously performed the play in Brooklyn and Los Angeles and this will mark the star's first role in the West End since 1984, when he performed in David Mamet’s “American Buffalo” at the Duke of York's Theatre. He recently starred in the Broadway premiere of Mamet's 'China Doll' which opened to a strong advance but bad reviews, following many complaining at the Oscar winners inability to learn lines and his reliance on TV screens and earpieces to feed him the material.
