Bobby Cannavale’s year may get a whole lot busier. The two-time Tony nominee, who starred on Broadway twice this season in Glengarry Glen Ross and The Big Knife, may be headed to the ‘70s in an untitled HBO series about rock and roll created by Martin Scorsese, Terence Winter and Mick Jagger.
Deadline reports that Cannavale, who appeared on season three of Scorsese and Winter’s Boardwalk Empire, may star in the show as Richie, a cocaine-addled record exec who rises through the ranks of New York’s music industry in the late 1970s. The project has long been in the works from Scorsese and Jagger.
Cannavale has become a staple of the Broadway stage in recent years after acclaimed turns in Mauritius, The Motherfucker with the Hat, Glengarry and The Big Knife. His screen credits include Nurse Jackie, Will & Grace, Blue Bloods, Cold Case, Cupid and Third Watch.
