Al Pacino, the legendary Oscar-winning actor known for his memorable performances in The Godfather, Serpico, Dog Day Afternoon, Scarface, Glengarry Glen Ross, Scent Of A Woman, Carlito’s Way, Heat, The Insider, Angels In America and I could go on, seems to be getting closer to making his television debut. Deadline is reporting that Pacino is nearing a deal to appear in a 10-episode season of the upcoming Amazon series The Hunt. The series will be executive produced by Oscar-winning writer-director Jordan Peele (Get Out, Us). Deadline describes the series as follows:
The Hunt follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters living in 1977 New York City. The Hunters, as they’re known, have discovered that hundreds of high ranking Nazi officials are living among us and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. The eclectic team of Hunters will set out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.

Aside from the silver screen, Pacino has earned critical praise for his performances in “Made for Cable” movies and miniseries’, including his Emmy-winning performances as Roy Cohn in Angels In America and Jack Kevorkian in You Don’t Know Jack. Pacino will be joined by Logan Lerman (Fury, Percy Jackson & The Olympians), who plays a young man joining the team of “hunters” after his grandfather’s murder. Pacino will play the Nazi hunter who shows him the ropes.
The Hunt, created by David Weil (Moonfall), has yet to receive a confirmed premiere date.
