Nick Nolte finds 'Luck' on HBO
If HBO's "Luck" keeps it up, we might need to start calling it "Movie Stars Of a Certain Age."
In addition to the previously announced Dustin Hoffman, Dennis Farina and John Ortiz, the David Milch-scripted pilot is close to landing Nick Nolte for a lead role, his first small screen project since he earned an Emmy nomination for the miniseries classic "Rich Man, Poor Man."
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Nolte (an Oscar nominee for "Afflication" and "Prince of Tides") would play a horse trainer in the drama, which is set against the backdrop of racing and gambling.
The pilot, set to be directed by Michael Mann, has also added Kevin Dunn ("Transformers"), Kerry Condon ("Rome") and Tom Payne.
