Is De Niro Up To Playing Madoff?

Unlike Al Pacino, who still occasionally emits a first-rate performance, Robert De Niro hasn’t wowed us for a while. Will he do so as Bernie Madoff? HBO has bought the recently published book “Truth and Consequences: Life Inside the Madoff Family” which was written with the co-operation of Madoff’s son Andrew and other family members. De Niro, 68, will star as Madoff, the former Wall Street financial expert who swindled investors out of an estimated $50 billion with a Ponzi scheme.
