Here is the trailer for HBO’s Phil Spector movie, titled — wait for it — “Phil Spector.”
In it, the madman music producer is played by Al Pacino, who judging by this trailer is giving Phil Spector the full Al Pacino treatment. Al Pacino knows that Phil Spector was not Al Pacino, right? Because Pacino seems to be playing Phil Spector like Al Pacino doing an Al Pacino impression. A bold move, yes, but perhaps not what anyone else besides Al Pacino had in mind.
Have a look:
Hoo-ah! “Phil Spector” airs March 24.
Related: Did you catch Pacino on Letterman last week? It kind of seemed like Pacino wasn’t sure that he was appearing on Letterman at the time. Why didn’t anyone tell him he had a talk show to do?
Things got awkward, until Kevin Spacey stepped in and saved the day.
Spacey! In a related story, “K-Pax” is now available on Blu-Ray.
