Al Pacino As Joe Paterno For HBO Film

See first look at Al Pacino as Penn State coach Joe Paterno in HBO film
The film also stars Riley Keough as Sara Ganim, the 23-year-old journalist who first reported on the scandal, bringing it to the attention of the national media - and ultimately winning a Pulitzer Prize for her work. Sandusky is seen above entering a Pennsylvania courthouse on August 12, 2016.
The HBO movie, directed by Barry Levinson, focuses on Paterno's fall from grace, "challenging his legacy and forcing him to face questions of institutional failure regarding the victims", according to a press release. The film was written by Debora Cahn and John C. Richards and David McKenna, and is being produced in association with Sony Pictures Television. Paterno was later fired by Penn State as a result of the controversy.
Paterno was dismissed by Penn State in 2011 in the wake of the Sandusky child sex abuse revelations. The controversial role as Dr. Jack Kevorkian won Pacino an Emmy and a Golden Globe award.
Before the scandal, Paterno was regarded as one of the most legendary coaches in college football history as he led them to two national championships over his 45 year career. The Oscar victor has starred in edgy films such as Scarface, Dog Day Afternoon, Cruising, and Angels in America. In 1999, Pacino starred in the Oliver Stone hit Any Given Sunday, in which he played Tony D'Amato, the gruff coach of a fictitious football team.
Deadline Hollywood has the first look at Pacino as Paterno and it is eerie.
