I can (sorta) see DeNiro playing Pacino's roles convincingly, but I cannot really see Pacino playing DeNiro's roles, especially Raging Bull.

Well, in 1980 Al Pacino did CRUISING and bulked up for that role like never before. So who knows.

This. I love Pacino, but I've always been a bigger fan of Bobby D.
