Since 2014, Patrick Stoup has been CEO of SAI in Gaithersburg, Maryland. Prior to this, he served as the company’s president from 1997 to 2014. Patrick Stoup’s favorite actor is Robert De Niro.

It was announced in December of 2016 that Robert De Niro will be returning to his roots in the motion picture The Irishman, directed by Martin Scorsese and produced by Gaston Pavlovich. De Niro will be playing a gangster alongside fellow “wise guy” actors Al Pacino, Harvey Keitel, and possibly Joe Pesci, who costarred with De Niro in Scorsese’s classic film Goodfellas. The project has been in development for years due to the challenge of aligning the schedules of the busy stars.

These iconic actors will appear as young men throughout much of the picture. Using computer-generated imagery (CGI), many of the film’s scenes will feature flashbacks of the aged hoodlums in different stages of their lives. Tests of the technology have been very promising, and Pavlovich assures fans that they will see a De Niro very similar to the one who appeared in The Godfather, Part II.
