Jared Leto earned praise for his role as Paolo Gucci in Ridley Scott’s House of Gucci, and if the actor had his way, he would step back into the role once again.

During a recent appearance on The Jess Cagle Show for SiriusXM, Leto spoke about how he would love to do another film as Paolo Gucci, perhaps with Al Pacino portraying Aldo Gucci, the father of Paolo in the film.

“I’d love to do a prequel to House of Gucci,” Leto said with a laugh. “Just the Two of Us, we could call it. [Pacino] was fantastic and just so generous. He’s what you hope to be when you get to that place and that position in terms of his openess and his kindness and willingness to do another take, dig a little deeper, and to talk about the scene. I just absolutely was in heaven with him and with Ridley.”

Leto had high praise for Pacino’s work and also called back to his initial introduction to Pacino not going exactly as he had planned.

“He thought I was just an Italian weirdo that was trying to talk to him or get his autograph or something,” Leto said. “I come up to him two or three times and someone finally whispered, ‘That’s Paolo, that’s Jared under there.’ And he was like, ‘My son, my son,’ and he fell to the floor. He was just astounded. Having that happen with one of the world’s greatest actors was a beautiful gift as it gave me the faith that if Al can believe in this guy then we all can. It was a boost of confidence early on.”
