“Casino Jack” Debuts in the District


By Matt Dornic Comment

With only a few weeks worth of notches left in his halfway house wall, Jack Abramoff will make his sillver screen debut in Washington D.C. this week.  The former lobbyist who famously defrauded four Indian tribes out of millions of dollars will not be present at the premiere of “Casino Jack” this Wednesday but Kevin Spacey, the Academy Award-winning actor who plays Ambramoff in the film, will attend the movie’s District debut. 

The premiere, sponsored by The Creative Coalition and Lanmark Technology, will be held at the Landmark E Street Cinema at 7 pm.  NBC’s Chris Matthews will host the event and moderate a Q & A with Spacey following the screening. 

Casino Jack is slated for theatrical release December 17th 2010.
