Hey isn’t that … actor Al Pacino lounging in the wine bar at the Ritz-Carlton in Tysons Corner on Friday night?

If the packed house at the Entyse Lounge didn’t recognize the 74-year-old Oscar winner at first, the hotel’s music director, Chris Linman, made sure to underscore Michael Corleone’s cameo.

Our tipster says she didn’t spot Pacino until Linman, a jazz musician who performs weekly at the Ritz, began playing the “Love Theme from the Godfather.”

“I looked up and who was sitting there but the man himself!” said our source, adding that Pacino gave the crowd “a smile and a wink.”
