Mick Jagger 's upcoming TV project is becoming a family affair. The Rolling Stones frontman's oldest son, James Jagger , is joining the cast of an upcoming HBO series Mick is executive producing along with movie director Martin Scorsese .
HBO reports that the younger Jagger will play Kip Stevens, the lead singer of a fictional early punk band named The Nasty Bits, in the as-yet untitled drama, which is set in the sex-and-drugs-fueled record business of 1970s New York as punk and disco are emerging.
Also joining the cast is comedian/actor Andrew Dice Clay , who will portray Frank "Buck" Rogers, the obnoxious, cocaine-snorting owner of a group of radio stations.
The project has already cast Bobby Cannavale in the lead role of Richie Finestra -- a record executive trying to rebuild his label around a new sound -- as well as Olivia Wilde as his wife and Ray Romano as his right-hand-man. Scorsese will direct the pilot episode.
Besides Jagger and Scorsese, the project's executive producers include the director's Boardwalk Empire collaborator Terence Winter , George Mastras , Victoria Pearman , Emma Tillinger Koskoff and Rick Yorn .
Mick has a budding career as a movie and television producer. In addition to his work on this HBO project, he is also co-producing the upcoming big-screen James Brown biopic Get On Up .
