Starring Eugene Levy as Joe Pa

NYT reviews tomorrow the new and much-awaited (if poorly timed, for the author) bio of Joe Paterno by Joe Posnanski .  It seems that it is, perhaps, overly kind and with little new on the Sandusky scandal.  Joe apparently never did like all those kids hanging around.  Sheesh.  But love this image from Dwight Garner:   "Joe Pa, as they called him at Penn State, began to look Nixonian. You could suddenly imagine the comic actor Eugene Levy portraying him on screen as a lecherous dweeb, his trousers hiked up to his nipples."
