'Superb' Pacino Praised By Dr. Death

The pathologist who inspired AL PACINO's new TV movie YOU DON'T KNOW JACK struggled to fight back tears as he watched the euthanasia film - because the Hollywood veteran's portrayal of the doctor is so realistic.
Pacino plays Dr. Jack Kevorkian in the HBO network project, about the 82-year-old medic who assisted in the suicides of more than 130 people, and the euthanasia activist admits he is delighted with the film.
Kevorkian tells the New York Daily News, "Al is a terrific guy. The film is superb. There were times when tears came into my eyes - even after all the experience I have."
The medic was dubbed Dr. Death in the early 1990s when he performed his first assisted suicide as part of his 'Mercy MAChine'.
Barry Levinson's You Don't Know Jack also stars Susan Sarandon, John Goodman and Danny Huston and airs in the U.S. on 24 April (10).
