LOS ANGELES - According to a new report by CNN, actor Al Pacino will portray legendary Penn State football coach Joe Paterno in an upcoming film.
As you may recall, the Hall of Fame Penn State football coach died in January, surrounded by scandal. CNN reports that the New York Times bestselling book, "Paterno," is going to be turned into a movie.
The film will reportedly depict Paterno's life, including the highly-publicized scandal concerning Assistant Coach Jerry Sandusky's child abuse allegations. Paterno was fired from his position and died a short time later from ill health.
This won't be Pacino's first time playing a football coach. He portrayed one when he starred in the 1999 Oliver Stone film, "Any Given Sunday."
