Even if you have a passing interest in music, you know Phil Spector. A famous producer who worked with some of the biggest girls groups around as well as members of the Beatles. His achievements are numerous, but he's sadly most recently known for his 2009 second-degree murder conviction for the 2003 shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson. He is serving a prison sentence of 19 years to life.
But art likes to imitate life and so behold HBO’s upcoming TV movie, “Phil Spector” that tells the tale of his trial. And who is crazy enough to play Phil? Why Al Pacino of course-with all kinds of crazy hair styles to boot. Add in Helen Mirren as his lawyer and have David Mamet write and produce it and you are sure to be entertained.
