"Say 'hallo,' to my giant hair!!!"
I hope you're ready to see Al Pacino attempt to act dramatically while wearing a potpourri of silly lady-wigs, because that's what HBO is going to give us. The NY Times reports that Pacino will rant and scream his way through a portrayal of legendary music producer/firearms enthusiast Phil Spector for an HBO biopic written and directed by David Mamet.
This is awesome. Spector is best known lately for his ability to produce dead actresses, rather than his acclaimed music production, but he's lead an intriguing life that not many know about. For instance, his unauthorized biography highlights the time he took a romantic interest in a young La Toya Jackson. He invited her over and she left running and crying through the Hollywood Hills not too long after. Nobody knows what went on in the house. I mean, c'mon. What HASN'T a Jackson seen? If Mamet can crack that nut, we're in for an interesting story.
