Two of the underrated actors of Hollywood Kevin Spacey and Jon Lovitz team up to make some magic on Casino Jack. The film is directed by George Hickenlooper. He is infamous for the love scene in Factory Girl with Sienna Miller and Hayden Christensen.
His next film Casino Jack stars Kevin Spacey who plays Jack Abramoff, a real life Washington, DC lobbyist who resorted to awe inspiring levels of conning, scheming and fraudulent antics to what he wanted. Casino Jack also stars Kelly Preston, Barry Pepper, and the always underused Jon Lovitz.
Here is a synopsis.
Two–time Academy Award Winner Kevin Spacey gives the performance of a lifetime in CASINO JACK, a riotous new film starring Spacey as a man hell bent on acquiring all that the good life has to offer. He plays in the same game as the highest of rollers and resorts to awe–inspiring levels of conning, scheming and fraudulent antics to get what he wants. Inspired by true events that are too over–the–top for even the wildest imaginations to conjure, CASINO JACK lays bare the wild excesses and escapades of Jack Abramoff. Aided by his business partner Michael Scanlon (Barry Pepper), Jack parlays his clout over some of the world’s most powerful men with the goal of creating a personal empire of wealth and influence. When the two enlist a mob–connected buddy (Jon Lovitz) to help with one of their illegal schemes, they soon find themselves in over their heads, entrenched in a world of mafia assassins, murder and a scandal that spins so out of control that it makes worldwide headlines.
Casino Jack opens this December.
