Today’s news:

We’ve heard that Brooklyn’s real estate market was sickly, but we didn’t think that Fillmore Real Estate felt it necessary to bring in Dr. Kevorkian!

But that was the case last week when famed Academy Award-winning actor Al Pacino was spotted at the agency’s Avenue U headquarters looking hauntingly like Dr. Death.

Pacino was all smiles on Avenue U near Nostrand Avenue as the street was roped off for the filming of “You Don’t Know Jack” -- a feature about the life and work of infamous assisted-suicide advocate.

The star of “The Godfather” series, “Scent of a Woman” and “Heat” delved into the role with his coiff of steel-grey hair and a bright red sweater. But the twinkle in Pacino’s eye was unmistakable as he waved to local residents during a break in filming.

The shoot took place all last week on Avenue U at the offices of Fillmore Real Estate’s main headquarters at Batchelder Street.

“You Don’t Know Jack,” which is based on a book by Neal Nicol, is being directed by Barry Levinson and also stars John Goodman and Susan Sarandon.
