- Barry Levinson explains the key to getting a great performance from a legend like Al Pacino is casting great actors around him.
- Out of all the amazing actors he’s worked with, he reveals why he’s grateful most for how Robert Redford treated him on the set of “The Natural.”
- And Levinson opens up about being on stage when John Oliver brought up Dustin Hoffman’s sexual misconduct allegations at an anniversary screening of his movie “Wag the Dog” last December.
Oscar-winning director Barry Levinson has been around the movie business for so long he hasn’t just worked with both Robert De Niro and Al Pacino, he’s worked with them multiple times — not to mention a whole bunch of other Hollywood legends.
From “Diner” — where Levinson basically launched not only his directing career, but the careers of Micky Rourke, Kevin Bacon, Steve Guttenberg, Paul Reiser, Ellen Barkin, and Daniel Stern — to “Rain Man” (which earned him his Oscar win), to “Wag the Dog,” Levinson’s work has created some of the best dramas of the last 30-plus years. And recently, in an era when major studios only want franchises that can bring in billions, Levinson has moved his storytelling to HBO and found success with the Bernie Madoff movie “The Wizard of Lies” (his latest collaboration with Robert De Niro), and now a look into the fall of legendary Penn State football coach, Joe Paterno, with Pacino in the lead role.See the rest of the story at Business Insider
