New Clip From Kevin Spacey's Casino Jack Wants To Show You The Money
Most people will recognize Casino Jack as that movie that got Rachelle Lafevre unceremoniously booted off of Twilight: Eclipse, but film fans will know that this is their next chance to see Kevin Spacey on the big screen. With co-stars Jon Lovitz, Kelly Preston and Barry Pepper, Jack might turn out to be one of the better movies of 2010.
This clip shows off Spacey’s Jack Abramoff and his partner in crime Michael Scanlon putting around a quiet tarmac and shouting quotes from Jerry Maguire. It doesn’t give you much of a look into the greed and corruption bred by these two men, but you at least get the idea that all they seem to care about is money, which eventually leads to their downfall. As you may recall, Abramoff was sentenced to six years in prison for defrauding Indian tribes that offered him money due to his powerful position as a lobbyist in Washington. He's emblematic of corruption in the Capitol, though as Abramoff himself points out, he was more of a symptom, not a cause.
Thanks to Yahoo! Movies for the clip.
Jack Abramoff plays in the same game as the highest of rollers and resorts to awe-inspiring levels of conning, scheming and fraudulent antics to get what he wants. Aided by his business partner Michael Scanlon, Jack parlays his clout over some of the world’s most powerful men with the goal of creating a personal empire of wealth and influence. When the two enlist a mob-connected buddy to help with one of their illegal schemes, they soon find themselves in over their heads, entrenched in a world of mafia assassins, murder and a scandal that spins so out of control that it makes worldwide headlines.
