Al Pacino to star as stand-up comedian

London: Oscar winning actor Al Pacino is all set to portaray himself as a stand-up comedian in a comedy flick.

The `Scarface` legend, who will shock fans of his dramatic work with a cameo in filmmmaker Adam Sandler`s upcoming comedy `Jack and Jill`, insists it`s perfect casting because Pacino`s roots are steeped in comedy, Daily Express reported.

"He really is one of the funniest guys. And I bet you didn`t know this, and I didn`t know it either, but he was a stand-up. That`s how he started.

"Pacino was in a comedy team, in the beginning. He and another guy, I forgot what the man`s name was, but he, like, used to do the improv in New York. I swear to god... For a while (too). It wasn`t just like a brief thing. He did it for like a couple years, I think. He told me some of his routines and they were great! (sic)," said Sandler.
