Robert De Niro Pleads Guilty in HBO’s Bernie Madoff Movie Wizard of Lies
Your less-fun wizarding news of the day: Robert De Niro is playing Bernie Madoff, casting his Ponzi scheme spell. De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Nathan Darrow (a.k.a. House of Cards’ Edward Meechum, RIP) star in HBO’s movie about Madoff’s fall. In this trailer, Madoff gets grilled by his granddaughter over his Wall Street wizardry until he has to ’fess up to his wife and kids. By the time he appears in court, he’s pleading guilty on all counts. Wizard of Lies airs Saturday May 20 on HBO.
