Pacino to star in new sitcom
Legendary movie icon Al Pacino will make the jump to prime-time television this fall on NBC. From the producers of Will & Grace, he will star in his first sitcom called ‘The Goddad’.
Pacino will play Paulie Morrello, a middle aged man who is forced to take care of his 9 year old neice when her parents die in a tragic car accident. Morrello has been a lifetime bachelor and womanizer who now must learn to care for others and stop his selfish ways.
Pacino is looking forward to the change. ‘It is a bittersweet show’, he says. ‘This will be a comedy but will also have a message for the whole family to enjoy. The stories will have morals to it.’ When asked how his movie fans will react to his new career path, he is very candid. ‘I’m getting old!’ Pacino laughs. ‘I now want to settle down and do something a little more consistent and lighthearted’. The sitcom will also star Kathy Najimy who will play the wise cracking aunt.
'The Goddad’ will air this fall on Thursday nights at 9:30PM following ‘My Name is Earl’.
Pacino does not need money this bad, does he??? I do not think this show will last long. Unbelievable and sad. How can he disgrace the legend of the Godfather movies with this crap!?!? Marlon Brando must be rolling over in his grave!
