Watch: Kevin Spacey as Abramoff in the 'Casino Jack' Trailer
"Out of order?! You're out of order!" Casino Jack is the feature film version of the infamous Casino Jack and the United States of Money story (watch the trailer for that doc) that stars the always awesome Kevin Spacey as political lobbyist Jack Abramoff. I'm not sure how fictional this version is compared to the true story, but it looks great. I love the trailer, it's such a perfect introduction to this flick. Spacey has a spark to him that not many other actors have and I love seeing him in this role, even if it is a little over-the-top, but screw it. Plus, I personally love the film versions of stories like this more than documentaries. Watch below!
