Joe Caniano, James Jagger and More Join HBO's Rock 'n Roll Drama Pilot

Deadline reports that HBO's untitled Rock 'n Roll drama pilot from Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger, George Mastras and Terence Winter has added more stars to its roster, including Joe Caniano, Andrew "Dice" Clay, Ato Essandoh, Robert Funaro, James Jagger, Birgitte Sorenson, and J.C. Mackenzie.

Read the original story here.

Set in 1970s New York, the drama "explores the drug- and sex-fueled music business as punk and disco were breaking out, all through the eyes of record executive Richie Finestra (Bobby Cannavale), who is trying to resurrect his label and find the next new sound."

Previously announced, Ray Romano's character is Finestra's close confidante and right hand man 'Zak Yankovich'. Olivia Wilde as 'Devon Finestra' and Juno Temple as 'Jamie Vine', an assistant at the record label, are also in the cast, with Jack Quaid as 'Clark Morelle' and Max Casella as 'Julian 'Julie' Silver' -- both characters also work at American Century.

Caniano will play 'Leo', Ritchie's chauffeur, with Clay playing 'Frank 'Buck' Rogers', the drug-addled owner of a radio station chain, Essandoh as 'Lester Grimes', former singer and "ex-colleague" of Finestra, Funaro as 'Tony Del Greco', the lead enforcer for a mob boss, and Jagger as 'Kip Stevens', lead singer of punk rock band Nasty Bits. Sorenson will star as 'Ingrid', a close friend of Finestra's wife and a Danish actress, and Mackenzie takes on the role of 'Skip Fontaine', American Century Records' head of sales.
