In time, HBO will certainly produce a blowout movie about the Trump administration. Remember "Game Change"? Oh, it will put "Game Change" to shame. To shame.
We all know that, in time, HBO will produce a blowout movie about the eternal Sisyphean dysfunction that defines the Trump administration. Remember "Game Change"? Oh, it will put "Game Change" to shame. To shame.
And, because nothing is surprising anymore, new White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci could easily sign on to produce it. After all, he's already got one major credit pending: The Hollywood Reporter confirmed Friday that Scaramucci is co-executive producing a movie for HBO.
The film, originally titled "Happy Valley" but to be renamed, is about disgraced Penn State football coach Joe Paterno. Al Pacino stars as Paterno, the longtime head coach of the Penn State Nittany Lions who was fired following child sex allegations against his defensive coordinator, Jerry Sandusky.
HBO declined to share details of Scaramucci's involvement in the project, only confirming that he helped with financing. It is unknown if the film will paint Paterno, still widely revered in the Penn State community, in a positive or negative light.
Scaramucci also has not commented on the report, which broke around the same time Friday that Page Six revealed Scaramucci's wife has filed for divorce.
A word of advice to Scaramucci: If you have any more "colorful language" to share, you'd be wise to keep it far from any Sandusky-related projects. Very far.
