    Al Pacino will play wildly-coiffed record producer Phil Spector in an HBO Films biopic, according to iamROGUE.com. Spector is currently in jail for murder. The story is being written by playwright David Mamet.

    Spector was famous for creating the "wall of sound" in the 1960s; in recent years, he became notorious for being convicted of second-degree murder in the shooting death of actress Lana Clarkson in 2003. The 70-year-old Spector is currently serving a prison sentence of 19 years to life.

    Will you watch this biopic, if only to see the wigs Pacino has to wear while playing this eccentric character?
