Al Pacino is really getting into his new role.

The Oscar winner will play late Penn State football coach Joe Paterno in an upcoming HBO movie about the Jerry Sanducky sex scandal.

A picture of Pacino as Paterno is making the rounds and, whoa boy, does he nail the look.

The movie, tentatively titled Happy Valley, will premiere sometime next year. It’s definitely dark and heady subject matter, but Pacino may be the perfect choice. He’s clearly an actor with the resume to take on such a controversial story and, after looking at this picture, it sure seems like he’s got the look down.
