Robert DeNiro looks scary good in the HBO movie The Wizard of Lies, in which he plays the infamous Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff.

The official synopsis: In 2008, stockbroker, investment advisor and financier Bernie Madoff made headlines around the world when he was arrested for perpetrating perhaps the largest financial fraud in U.S. history. Michelle Pfeiffer stars as Ruth Madoff, Bernie’s longtime spouse and unwitting partner during the events that would lead to financial ruin for countless people and institutions, as well as his and his family’s destruction. Directed by Barry Levinson, The Wizard of Lies also stars Alessandro Nivola, Lily Rabe and Hank Azaria.
