Ray Romano is the latest star to join the cast of HBO’s upcoming rock ‘n’ roll pilot, executive produced by Mick Jagger and Martin Scorsese and written by Terence Winter.
The pilot follows a record executive struggling to revive his label in the midst of the onset of punk and disco in 1970s New York. So far, Bobby Cannavale, Olivia Wilde, Juno Temple, Max Casella, Jack Quaid, and now, Romano are set to star.
Romano will play the record executive’s (Cannavale) friend, who has a history of experience in the music business dating back to the days of the mob. The HBO project is set to begin production this summer, with Scorsese directing the pilot.
Since 2012, Romano has played a photographer struggling with social issues on NBC family drama Parenthood.
