Info on "The Pacific" an HBO Miniseries
The Pacific is being produced by the same people that did the Band of Brothers HBO miniseries. This time around they will explore the Pacific Theater of Operations. If you have not seen Band of Brothers, I suggest you do. The book and the miniseries are both fantastic. I'm a big fan of the late Stephen Ambrose, one of the executive producers (Along with Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg, whoever the hell they are?) of the miniseries and author of the book.
Actor Bill Sadler and Lewis "Chesty" Puller
Bill Sadler will portray Puller in the upcoming miniseries The Pacific. I see a resemblance, what do you think?

The Pacific is based primarily on two memoirs of U.S. Marines: With the Old Breed by Eugene Sledge and Helmet for My Pillow by Robert Leckie.

Medal of Honor recipient John Basilone and the actor who will be playing him in "The Pacific" Jon Seda. Both wearing the Medal of Honor, one real, one a movie prop.

If you don't have HBO, get it before March 14th. This is going to be bad-ass. For more pictures from the upcoming HBO miniseries check out this link HBO: The Pacific: Slideshow
