Al PacinoAl Pacino has played cops, lawyers, spies, moguls, crusaders, heels, soldiers, mentors, Shakespearean tragic heroes and even Satan, but he'll always be best remembered for his gangsters.

So it's good news that he's adding yet another to his rogues gallery, with the news that he's joining the cast of 'Gotti: Three Generations.' In the John Gotti biopic, which will star John Travolta as the Dapper Don, Pacino will play real-life Gambino crime family underboss Neil Dellacroce.

It might be a stretch for the diminutive actor to play a gangster who was known as "The Tall Guy," but Pacino has played six memorable mobsters in his career, all of them unique, none of them a clone of his Michael Corleone or Tony Montana. That will certainly give him the presence, authority and experience to play Dellacroce, who was Gotti's mentor in the 1970s (though he sided against his protege and in favor of Paul Castellano when the latter crossed Gotti by forbidding drug dealing in their crime syndicate). Here's a look at the rich criminal history, role by role, that Pacino will bring to bear when he plays "Father O'Neil."
