Are De Niro and Pacino the new Crockett and Tubbs?
'Righteous Kill' is a new movie--opening in September--starring Robert De Niro and Al Pacino as partners in crime. Fighting crime, that is. In the trailer, the duo talk tough, grimace often and kick butt in their inimitable ways.
De Niro: "Watch your back. Hey, watch your back."
Pacino: "That's right. You keep smiling."
De Niro opts for ties; Pacino prefers a black, leather blazer with an open shirt. It looks like they hang out in night clubs and love the smell of gunpowder in the morning. Does anyone else see the resemblance to the men of 'Miami Vice?'
According to imdb.com, De Niro and Pacino go by "Turk" and Rooster."
