Al Pacino to Play Jack Kevorkian on April 24th
So we all know the story of Jack Kevorkian and his promotion of euthanasia. While some refer to him as “Dr. Death,” supporters argue that “idiosyncrasies aside — Kevorkian is a hero who helped more than 130 terminally ill people end their own lives with dignity.”
I don’t care to debate whether or not euthanasia is okay. What I do find interesting is that Kevorkian never went to jail for his claim of helping over 125 people with assisted suicides, because Michigan does not have a direct assisted suicide ban. The only reason he did go to jail (for 8 years) was for killing a disabled person on national television. During this time he also wrote a book, which has now been turned into an HBO movie and will be debuted on April 24th. The movie is titled, “You Don’t Know Jack,” and Al Pacino will be playing Kevorkian.
Now, is it just me, or is it weird that they decided to debut the movie on April 24th?
