It amuses us to no end that HBO's forthcoming period rock and roll drama from the likes of 'Boardwalk Empire' Terence Winter, Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger still hasn't settled on a title, yet continually expands its cast to biblical proportions. Joining Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde and Ray Romano today are Mick Jagger's own son James, comedian Andrew "Dice" Clay, a 'Wolf' of Wall Street, and many more.
While the latest 'Annie' trailer -- highlighting moments from the upcoming movie remake of the classic Broadway play -- expectedly has a lot of singing and dancing, it's more about the comedy this time around, which is full of your classic Broadway musical-style cheesiness cheekiness. Even Jamie Foxx's Daddy Warbucks knockoff spinoff Will Stacks can make a crack at The Dark Knight (a joke which you'll see brought up again).
Although it doesn't yet have a title, HBO's forthcoming Mick Jagger-Martin Scorsese ’70s-set rock drama has intrigued more and more with the casting of leading actor Bobby Cannavale ('Boardwalk Empire') and Olivia Wilde. Now, in lieu of actually naming the thing, the new HBO drama has taken yet another surprise move in casting sitcom icon Ray Romano among its regulars.
We were a bit bummed to learn that 'Boardwalk Empire' showrunner Terence Winter had accepted a season 5 end to the HBO prohibition drama in order to develop his new 1970s New York rock drama with Bobby Cannavale, Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese, but the proposed series just got a whole lot prettier. Olivia Wilde will return to TV for the new HBO period drama, but as whom, you ask?
While we were saddened to see Bobby Cannavale depart HBO's 'Boardwalk Empire' last year, the former Gyp Rosetti may not have gone very far. New reports claim that Cannavale has won the leading role in a long-gestating music drama pilot created for HBO by Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger himself, and 'Boardwalk Empire' creator Terence Winter.
