Al Pacino is a big big star. As of today he's appeared in more than 45 films. Granted he’s only played 3 characters but he’s been fantastic as each one. Problem is, not everybody can afford a big star like Pacino. So sometimes they get Andy Garcia, the poor man’s Al Pacino. Thing is, a poor man’s Al Pacino is still pretty expensive so sometimes they have to get Anthony LaPaglia, the poor man’s Andy Garcia. Even his price is a little high for some so they go and get Ron Silver, the poor man’s Anthony LaPaglia a.k.a. the poor poor poor man’s Al Pacino.

Dude, you have to see "Reversal of Fortune". Ron Silver plays Alan Dershowitz, the famous lawyer (you may remember him from the OJ trial... and that contrived Cubs-Red Sox debate on ESPN). There's a great scene early on where he's playing hoops... ridiculously. Alosi made us watch that, for what reason I don't know.
