Mick Jagger's Son Joining Cast of Rock-Themed HBO Series Mick Is Co-Producing

Image courtesy Eagle Rock EntertainmentMick 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.
