Marlon Brando, Jr.

 (April 3, 1924 - July 1, 2004) was a two-time Academy Award-winning iconic actor whose body of work spans over half a century. Brando is best known for his roles in A Streetcar Named Desire and On the Waterfront, both directed by Elia Kazan in the early 1950s, and his Academy-Award winning performance as Vito Corleone in The Godfather. His acting style, combined with his public persona as an outsider uninterested in the Hollywood of the early 1950s, had a profound effect on a generation of actors including Jack Nicholson, Robert De Niro, Paul Newman, Al Pacino, James Dean, Dustin Hoffman, Russel Crowe, Sean Penn and most recently actors like Adrien Brody, Mark Ruffalo, Leonardo DiCaprio and Johnny Depp. Brando was also an activist, lending his presence to many issues, including the American Indian Movement. He was named the fourth Greatest Male Star of All Time by the American Film Institute.
