Keeping in line with actors-playing-real-life-creeps-in-an-attempt-to-creep-us-out, Al Pacino will be starring as infamous music icon Phil Spector for an upcoming HBO biopic about the convicted murderer. On Monday, Pacino, who disappeared into his role as the late Jack Kevorkian in the Golden Globe-winning You Don’t Know Jack, was spotted out filming the yet-to-be-titled movie, completely decked out in Spector-eqsue garb. While Pacino certainly has the crazy eyes down (no aviator sunglasses can hide the crazy eyes), we’re still anxiously awaiting when they get to Spector’s full-blown crazy hair/crazy person phase. Bonus incentive for the makeup crew: Pacino may not even require a wig!
Still, this is all somehow less disturbing than Pacino playing himself and falling for Adam Sandler in drag in the trailer for the comedy Jack and Jill. Go figure.
What do you think of Al Pacino as Phil Spector, PopWatchers? Are you sufficiently creeped out? Or will you need to see the crazy hair to decide?
