Al Pacino or Robert De Niro as Dave Kujan

March 2, 2007 10:33pm CST
The part of Dave Kujan was first offered to Robert de niro who turned it down. Then to christopher walken who also did the same. Finally it was offered to Al Pacino who really liked the part but was forced to turn it down because of scheduling conflicts. He has since then mentioned that this is the film he regrets turning down the most. I wonder how it would have been in any of them had played the role of Dave. I would really have liked to see Al Pacino play the police officer {Remember heat ? }

You mean as opposed to seeing Chazz Palminteri? He was great! He added a sort of playful nature to a tough cop, one that was acting tough anyway. The best thing about Al Pacino playing the role is Kevin getting the last laugh. He did it with Jack Lemmon in GlenGarry Glen Ross.

i would really prefer Al Pacino for that role as well xd playing as the confused officer(dave) would suit him more thn Deniro there... he never looks that compromising ;d anyhoo both actors r really gud at what they do ..n would certainly be gud options here though Chazz Palminteri who played dave s role, did fulfill all the requirements there if u ask me ..(Y)

I love Al but I don't think I would have liked him as Dave. Chazz was less intense. Al would have over powered Kevin. The balance would have been off. I like Al in Heat. There his nature was perfect.

I dont know who the Dave Kujan is , but still i feel Johny Depp would be the better one , and can make himself suitable for any kind of role.........
