    Default Al Pacino To Play Phil Spector In TV Movie



    NEW YORK ó HBO says Al Pacino is set to star as legendary record producer Phil Spector in a TV film to be written and directed by David Mamet (MAM'-eht).

    The film will tell the story of Spector, who long ago recorded such acts as the Beatles, Cher and the Ramones. Now, at age 70, he's serving a prison sentence of 19 years to life for murder. He was convicted for the 2003 shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson.

    The 70-year-old Pacino starred in the HBO film "You Don't Know Jack" earlier this year as Jack Kevorkian, who served time in prison for assisting in the suicide of a terminally ill man.

    The as-yet-untitled Spector film is in the early stages of development, HBO said. The project was first reported by The New York Times.

    Al is perfect for the role. Too bad I have no real interest in the Phil Specter story, other than the outrageous hairdos he sported during his trial.

    1. Is Al now going to be a "portraits of famous people" actor?
    2. Al will be able to swap his own hair piece for the crazy wigs of Spector.

    Maybe he'll just borrow Warren Beatty's.

    Warren wears a toupee??? Noooooo!!!

    I think there should be a lot of interesting content from his early life when he was the "wall of sound" producer for so many major singers/groups. Not to mention his Svengali-like relationship with poor Ronnie Spector. However, I would tend to think that Pacino would be too old to portray that period of Spector's life.

    Looking foward to see this one. Al Pacino is absolutely brilliant and just about can play anyone.
