Al Pacino as Joe Paterno

HBO has released the first image of Al Pacino starring as Joe Paterno in a movie about the late Penn State coach and the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Paterno became Penn State's football coach in 1966 and coached until he was sacked in 2011 after the revelations that Sandusky, longtime defensive coordinator, was arrested on 52 counts of child sexual abuse that occurred between 1994 and 2009. Rounding out the cast are Heroes' Greg Grunberg (as son Scott Paterno), Friends From College's Annie Parisse (as daughter Mary Kay Paterno) and The Girlfriend Experience's Riley Keough.

Pacino has made his living portraying heroes and heels, but usually not at the same time.

Meanwhile, Levinson will serve as both director and executive producer of the upcoming project.

Pacino plays Paterno in the film to be directed by Barry Levinson and now we have our first look at Pacino as the controversial Paterno.
