David Gordon Green returns with his follow-up to last year’s critically-acclaimed Joe, and although both Green and Al Pacino appear to be trying very hard, it doesn’t look like the director can do the same for Pacino that he did for Nicolas Cage. Credit where credit’s due: this does look like one of Pacino’s best performances in recent memory.

We all know the familiar story of the washed-up, has-been rocker, but the trailer for ‘Danny Collins’ takes the premise and gives it a little twist with an added bit of hoo-ah for emphasis: what if a promising rocker actually went on to have a very successful career, but that career was shallow and lacked the depth and soul of his earlier, folksy background? What if a rocker who idolized John Lennon evolved into something of a Barry Manilow? The result is Al Pacino’s Danny Collins, and as Annette Bening notes, he does look slightly ridiculous.

SNL knows that it is a good thing in Bill Hader's wonderfully deranged Al Pacino impression and they put it to good use on last night's episode, having the incredibly talented performer play Pacino playing multiple roles. Parodying Pacino's involvement in HBO films like 'You Don't Know Jack' and 'Phil Spector,' the sketch finds Hader's Pacino making HBO biopics where he plays every convicted murderer under the sun.
