The actor will portray "Joe Pa" in an upcoming HBO biopic directed by Barry Levinson.

Sandusky, who was Paterno's assistant coach between 1969 and 1999, was found guilty on 45 counts of sexual abuse during his reign at the school. Joe Paterno died in 2012 at age 85 after a battle with lung cancer, just two months after he was sacked from his decades-long coaching job.

A photo of Pacino made up as the former Penn State coach has been revealed, and the resemblance is uncanny.

Pacino has starred in other HBO films like the Jack Kevorkian biopic, "You Don't Know Jack", and "Phil Spector". No word yet on who will play Sandusky.

The movie, which will be on HBO, is now in production.

In addition to the Pacino photo, HBO released a few more casting details.

The movie will also star Riley Keough as Sara Ganim, the young journalist who won a Pulitzer for breaking the Sandusky story while working for a local newspaper in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He previously played a fictional one in the movie Any Given Sunday. The narrative may very well focus on Paterno and his family.
