Robert De Niro (born 1943) is one of the greatest actors in American film history. He appears in a lot of gangster/cop flicks, and is often compared to Al Pacino. De Niro's most memorable roles include Vito Corleone, Travis Bickle, and Jake LaMotta. Under Martin Scorsese's direction, he was one of the first actors to really take Dyeing for Your Art to the next level.
