Kevin Spacey is set to play disgraced Washington power broker Jack Abramoff in a new film for director George Hickenlooper (“The Man from Elysian Fields”).
“Casino Jack” will star Spacey as the once high-powered lobbyist whose bribery schemes and fraudulent dealings with Indian casinos ultimately landed him in prison.
