Al Pacino Yells A Lot In Trailer For HBO’s Phil Spector Biopic
“I’ve played this game a million times before! I know how the game is played!” Al Pacino bellows during a meltdown in the trailer for HBO’s upcoming Phil Spector biopic, in which he plays the starring role. And that quote may join “Say hello to my little friend!” and “You’re outta order!” and “Just when I thought I was out, they pull me back in” and “Hoo-hah!” as some of the thespian’s most famous lines.
The film depicts the famously explosive producer’s relationship with his attorney Linda Kenney Baden who defended him during his trial for the murder of Lana Clarkson. Oscar winning actress Helen Mirren plays Baden (and buries her British accent) in the film, which was written and directed by David Mamet.
Pacino seems all-in with the role. Of course, it’s no stretch to see his character’s temper flaring (see the above quotes), but this might be the first time he’s worn a fright wig in a film (à la the giant afro Spector sported at one of his court appearances).
Phil Spector premieres Sunday, March 24 on HBO.
Watch the trailer below (note: some “not safe for work” language).
