Al Pacino To Star In Amazon Studios’ ‘The Hunt’

Published

Iconic actor Al Pacino has delivered classic performances throughout his film career. When it comes to the small screen, however, he’s only been a part of a few noticeable roles. Thanks to one Oscar-winning director, that’s going to change very soon.

On The Hunt

Pacino is in negotiations with Amazon Video to star in Jordan Peele’s drama series The Hunt. The series already has an esteemed cast featuring Logan Lerman, Jerrika Hinton, and Dylan Baker.

Amazon Studios head Jennifer Salke saw this as a great addition to Amazon Video’s vast library. “The Hunt is edge-of-your-seat entertainment that is not only culturally relevant but deliciously original. David Weil, Jordan Peele, and the entire Monkeypaw and Sonar Entertainment teams represent the dream team! We can’t wait to get started,” she told Deadline.

You Remind Me Of Someone

Pacino’s biggest television role was lawyer Roy Cohn in HBO’s Angels in America. His performance earned him an Emmy and Golden Globe Awards for Best Lead Actor. “You know, I didn’t know Roy Cohn, and Tony, I’m sure, didn’t know him. But he uses Roy Cohn as a symbol and even says in the play, this has no resemblance to the real person…. I realize, trying to do biopics from time to time, that the best work is usually the most fictionalized,” he told Entertainment Weekly.

The actor earned the same awards for his portrayal of Jack Kevorkian in 2010’s You Don’t Know Jack. Last year, he portrayed football coach Joe Paterno in Paterno.

No Sleep For Pacino

Pacino isn’t done portraying famous people yet. In October, he’ll portray Jimmy Hoffa in The Irishman. For Pacino to rightfully play a 39-year-old, visual effects studio Industrial Light & Magic had to step in. He also had the help of crew to get his mind right. “Someone would come up to me and say, ‘You’re 39.’ [You’d recall] some sort of memory of 39, and your body tries to acclimate to that and think that way. They remind you of it,” he said on the Bill Simmons Podcast.

Pacino is also set to star in the upcoming Once Upon a Time in Hollywood and Axis Sally.
