The cast of David Milch (Deadwood) and Michael Mann’s (Heat) horse-racing and gambling drama Luck continues to expand as Kevin Dunn (Transformers) , Kerry Condon (The Last Station), and Tom Payne (Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day) have all joined the cast. The HBO drama series will feature Dustin Hoffman as Ace Bernstain, a man who, after three years in prison, teams with his longtime chauffeur and muscle (played by Dennis Farina), to craft a complex plan involving the Santa Anita racetrack.
THR reports that Dunn will play the prodigious misanthrope who is the ringmaster of a syndicate of misfits. Condon will play an exercise rider who is interested in “Bug Boy” (Payne), an apprentice jockey.
As we reported earlier today, Nick Nolte has also just joined the cast and will play a formerly famous trainer known as “The Old Man”.
