Here's The First Look At Al Pacino Playing Joe Paterno

Al Pacino, left, will play Joe Paterno in an HBO movie about the former Penn State football coach.

In 2010, Pacino starred as Dr. Jack Kevorkian in the HBO- and Levinson-directed film You Don't Know Jack.

Paterno, who died in 2012, was dismissed by Penn State the previous year in the wake of the Sandusky child sex abuse revelations. He becomes involved in his assistant coach Jerry Sandusky's sexual abuse scandal, which leads to his credibility and legacy being questioned and criticized.

The photo shows Pacino wearing Penn State gear and glasses looking just like the late Paterno. In 2012, he was found guilty of 45 charges of sexual abuse and sentenced to 60 years in prison. That may apply to Penn State administrators Tim Curley and Graham Spanier, who were sentenced to prison in connection with the Sandusky scandal, as well.

This is also the second time in Pacino's movie career that he will be playing a football coach. Check out the photo from the film, which is now in production, in the gallery below.
