News, but not the serious kind
Hey Jack, you got anything for my migraine?
Blog Guy, whatever happened to Jack Kevorkian, that assisted suicide guy? He’s in prison, right?
Not anymore. He served eight years but got out a couple of years ago.
Interestingly, he’s the subject of a new HBO movie, “You Don’t Know Jack.” Kevorkian is played by Al Pacino.
Good casting. There’s an uncanny resemblance between the two.
Anyway, the movie, which also stars John Goodman and Susan Sarandon, just had its premiere in New York. The real Kevorkian was there to promote it, posing with most of the actors.
What do you mean, MOST of them?
Well, we don’t actually have him with Sarandon.
I don’t know for sure why that is, but she was on crutches at the event. My guess is that Kevorkian said something like, “I can help you out with that,” and she hobbled away at a high rate of speed.
Yikes! Well, he must be a very interesting guy. After the evening was over, what did Pacino and Goodman say about meeting with him?
Nothing. Neither actor has been seen since then.
