Ray Romano Joins Martin Scorsese–Mick Jagger HBO Pilot

Comedian Ray Romano performs at The Mirage Hotel & Casino on April 6, 2014 in Las Vegas, Nevada.

You know what literally every person says? "No one says rock and roll and drama like Ray Romano." Good thing he has been added to the Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger executive produced HBO pilot. Co-written by George Mastras (Breaking Bad) and Boardwalk Empire creator Terence Winter, the show is set in the music business in 1970s New York. It stars Bobby Cannavale as a record executive and Olivia Wilde as his bohemian wife. Romano will play Cannavale's tough right-hand man, with ties back to the old days (wink). You know, just like in Welcome to Mooseport.
