Don't look to actor Richard Dreyfuss to defend Bernie Madoff, though he is playing the rapacious investment guru in ABC's miniseries "Madoff". "Actors don't only play people they approve of," says Dreyfuss, who for years tried to launch a film project that would star him as Adolf Hitler. Another object of scorn he did portray was former Vice President Dick Cheney, in the 2008 feature "W". Dreyfuss is chillingly charming as he inhabits the self-proclaimed Wall Street "magician," whose colossal Ponzi scheme lost as much as $40 billion for tens of thousands of clients in more than 100 countries, ranging from movie stars to elderly retirees.Dreyfuss had a similar opportunity."Madoff" won't be the last televisual word on Madoff's infamy.Unlike the chronologically plotted "Madoff," HBO's film is expected to take a retrospective tact framed by Madoff as he serves his 150-year sentence.
