On Saturday, HBO released a first-look photo of Al Pacino as disgraced Penn State University head football coach Joe Paterno in its new biopic.

It was also revealed that Annie Parisse will play Paterno's daughter and Riley Keough will play Sara Ganim, the 23-year-old journalist who reported on the scandal.

Paterno became Penn State's football coach in 1966 and coached until he was sacked in 2011 after the revelations that Sandusky, longtime defensive coordinator, was arrested on 52 counts of child sexual abuse that occurred between 1994 and 2009.
