Susan Sarandon, John Goodman Join Al Pacino For Kevorkian Biopic

As if longtime legend Al Pacino starring as the man deemed "Dr. Death" wasn't compelling enough to induce fanatic anticipation for the upcoming Jack Kevorkian biopic, two more film veterans have been confirmed for the cast.

HBO Films' You Don't Know Jack is casting Susan Sarandon as Janet Good, an activist who becomes a staunch supporter of Dr. Kevorkian's assisted suicide practices for the terminally ill, according to Reuters. John Goodman, who co-starred previously with Sarandon in Warner Bros. Pictures' Speed Racer, plays Kevorkian's friend, co-worker and supporter, Nicol.

Kevorkian, who was released on parole in June 2007, has agreed to work with producers for the film, which is a first for the media-popular story.
