As a huge Al Pacino fan, I was surprised to hear that Pacino would be playing Dr. Jack Kevorkian in the HBO movie ‘You Don’t Know Jack.’ But I was even more surprised when I found out that Pacino and Kevorkian himself have plans to get together for a game of poker!
How did plans for this poker game come to be? Apparently Pacino and Jack Kevorkian met at the premiere of the film a couple of weeks ago. Having heard that Pacino was also a poker player, Kevorkian asked him to join him for a game in Michigan. Pacino said, “He’s invited me to Detroit to play poker. For Jack, I think I’ll go do it.” Of Pacino, Kevorkan said, “Any man who plays poker can’t be all that bad.”
The two have not scheduled a specific day for their poker game, but when it happens I hope someone will make a video! I’m sure I’m not the only one who would love to see a game of poker go down between this oddly matched pair.
Al Pacino and Jack Kevorkian are two of just many celebrities that enjoy playing poker. Other celebrity poker players include Ben Affleck, Tobey Maguire, Don Cheadle, Paul Rudd, Ron Livingston, Sarah Silverman, Tom Green, David Cross, Andy Richter and more. I guess that actors are good bluffers!
