Hollywood legend Al Pacino will once again showcase his superb acting skills in a new film about disgraced Penn State football coach Joe Paterno.
The movie is based on the New York Times bestselling book, Paterno. As film experts said, Al Pacino is the perfect choice for the challenging role. He has the skills and experience to give justice to Paterno’s character.
Paterno, who had the best winning record in college football, led a life full of challenges and intrigue. He was fired from his coaching job due to his alleged role in covering up the child molestation scandal involving assistant coach Jerry Sandusky, who was revealed to be a pedophile.
The new book, which was written by former Sports Illustrated columnist Joe Posnanski, takes a closer look at Paterno’s relationship with Sandusky. Due to the scandal, Paterno was fired from Penn State in November. He died in January.
It was also learned that an independent report conducted by former FBI director Louis Freeh, concluded that Paterno as well as other Penn State bigwigs, “failed to protect against a child sexual predator harming children for over a decade.”
We wish Al Pacino all the best in his role as Paterno!
