HBO’s “Vinyl” is Music Industry Meets the Sopranos in Mid 70’s NYC
New series from Martin Scorsese and Mick Jagger is, well if it's anything IT IS, sex, drugs and rock n' roll.
How Scorsese was that right? It moves fast, it's chaotic, violent, raw and real, loud and shocking, intense and stunning. I'll be honest hearing music from and seeing people portraying the NY Dolls sold me! Looks like Bo Diddley is in there too! What's not to love? Unfortunately we have to wait until 2016... but this years flown by so fast I'm sure we';ll be watching "Vinyl" before you know it!
I've got a feeling lead actor, Bobby Cannavale is going to be gold in this show. Far out from the show airing to be saying this perhaps, but knowing him from his other roles and watching this clip; he could be an Emmy caliber character in this series. He's that good and in THIS role, I'm expecting him to hit it out of the park. I'm assuming like Gandolfini in the Sopranos; he'll be up to no good and way out of line, but we're probably gonna love him. Ray Romano also appears in the series. In fact, here's more of a breakdown from HBO.com in case the trailer wasn't loud enough for you!!
From Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terence Winter, this new drama series is set in 1970s New York. A ride through the sex- and drug-addled music business at the dawn of punk, disco, and hip-hop, the show is seen through the eyes of a record label president, Richie Finestra, played by Bobby Cannavale, who is trying to save his company and his soul without destroying everyone in his path. Additional series regulars include Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano, Ato Essandoh, Max Casella, P.J. Byrne, J.C. MacKenzie, Birgitte Hjort Sørensen, Juno Temple, Jack Quaid, James Jagger and Paul Ben-Victor.
