    Default Pacino to play Joe Paterno in biopic

    I already want to see this one. Who will get the role of the creepy Jerry Sandusky?

    Al Pacino to Play Joe Paterno


    Actor reunites with director Brian De Palma for biopic of famed Penn State football coach

    Al Pacino will play Joe Paterno in an upcoming biopic of the famed Penn State football coach to be directed by Brian De Palma, Deadline reports. Paterno's career ended in scandal when it was revealed he and others were aware of allegations of molestation against assistant Jerry Sandusky, but ignored them.

    Tentatively titled Happy Valley, the movie could be based on the bestselling biography Paterno by Joe Posnanski, which producer Edward R. Pressman optioned. American History X and Blow scribe Dave McKenna is reportedly making a deal to write the script.

    The Shouty Al Pacino Hoo-Ha Appreciation Society

    In confirming the project, Pressman said: "Happy Valley reunites the Scarface and Carlito’s Way team of De Palma and Pacino for the third time, and I can’t think of a better duo to tell this story of a complex, intensely righteous man who was brought down by his own tragic flaw."

    Pacino actually said this isn't finalized yet.

    Jay Mohr did a great Pacino impression while talking to Sndusky. Had me rolling.

    I don't know if I'd call covering-up pedophilia "tragic." Pathetic and despicable maybe...

    "Tragic" implies that it's a tragedy. The cover up wasn't a tragedy. Earthquakes that take the lives of innocents are a tragedy. Sandusky secretly molesting little boys is/was a tragedy. The cover up is just fvcked up. I wouldn't call it "tragic" in that sense either. I get what the Splatoon is getting at here.

    The coverup allowed it to continue, thus: tragic.

    unless I'm misinformed and Paterno only found out after the last child was molested. I didn't follow the story enough to know.
