Al Pacino as Coach Joe Paterno: First Peek

Annie Parisse To Co-Star In HBO's Joe Paterno Movie About Penn State Scandal See first look at Al Pacino as Penn State coach Joe Paterno in HBO film

Films has released a first look photo of Al Pacino starring as football coach Joe Paterno in it's untitled Barry Levinson project.

A photo of Pacino made up as the former Penn State coach has been revealed, and the resemblance is uncanny.

Barry Levinson has signed on as executive producer and director of the film, which will chronicle the scandal that tarnished Paterno's legacy, almost destroyed the Penn State football program, resulted in jail time for several university administrators and shattered dozens of lives.

There is now no release date set for the film. Pacino won Emmy and Golden Globe awards for his role as Dr. Jack Kevorkian. Other stars in the film include Kathy Baker, as wife Sue Paterno, Greg Grunberg (as son Scott Paterno), Annie Parisse (as daughter Mary Kay Paterno) and Riley Keough as reporter Sara Ganim.

Sandusky, who was Paterno's assistant coach between 1969 and 1999, was found guilty on 45 counts of sexual abuse during his reign at the school.

On Monday, Netanyahu is scheduled to become the first Israeli prime minister to visit Hungary since the end of Communist rule. The Jews arrested were confined for four days at the Vel' d'Hiv velodrome, and from there deported to Auschwitz.

We haven't heard much about the film since it was initially announced, but now we have a first-look at Pacino portraying Paterno for the upcoming film.

Shortly after being fired as Penn State football coach in 2012, Paterno died due to complications from lung cancer.

Al Pacino is no stranger to controversial roles. 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.

Paterno coached the Nittany Lions to 409 victories from 1966 to 2011 - 111 of which were vacated because of the scandal.
