Now we have our first peek at what they'll look like in their roles.
Inspired by ABC News Chief Investigative Correspondent Brian Ross’ book “The Madoff Chronicles," "Madoff" will follow the life of Bernie Madoff, a disgraced investment adviser who in 2009, pleaded guilty to 11 federal felonies and admitted that his business was actually a Ponzi scheme that cost his investors billions. The miniseries, which is currently in production, will also focus on how he committed his crimes and the effects his actions had on his family, colleagues and victims.
Among the actors playing supporting roles are Charles Grodin as Carl Shapiro, Lewis Black as Ezra Merkin, Frank Whaley as Harry Markopolos, Erin Cummings as Eleanor Squillari, Tom Lipinski as Mark Madoff, and Lyne Renee as Catherine Hooper. Raymond De Felitta is directing the project.
"Madoff" will air later this year.
