Al Pacino Seen as Joe Paterno on 'Happy Valley' Set

Al Pacino walks around the set of his upcoming movie Happy Valley on Monday morning (July 17) in New York City.

The 77-year-old actor is playing the role of disgraced Penn State football coach Joe Paterno in the film, which is following the scandal that erupted surrounding Jerry Sandusky.

Paterno died in January 2012, just months after he was fired from his job following the revelation that he covered up Sandusky‘s sexual abuse crimes.

This isn’t the first time that Pacino is playing a football coach. He previously played a fictional one in the movie Any Given Sunday.
