Watch: Bobby Cannavale Is Frighteningly Enthused About Rock ‘n’ Roll in Scorsese/Jagger’s ‘Vinyl’


“Think back to the first time you heard a song that made the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Made you want to dance. Or go out and kick somebody’s ass. That’s what I’m talking about.” So Bobby Cannavale’s record exec character, Richie Finestra, in cocaine-induced egomaniacal fashion, begins the first full trailer for Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger and Terrence Winter’s HBO show, Vinyl.

The show also features Olivia Wilde, Ray Romano (you read that correctly), Juno Temple and P.J. Byrne living out the sexy, druggy, rock ‘n’ roll-y life you’ve surely heard too much about through that hackneyed triad alone. Scorcese has directed Vinyl — which is penned by Breaking Bad writer George Mastras and Winter, who created the show, based on, as The Independent puts it, an “idea conceived by Jagger.” (From the looks of the trailer, one could assume that one day Mick Jagger simply said, “rock ‘n’ roll” and “television” out loud in a sentence and thus became intrinsically involved.)

The show begins on an unspecified date in January. Watch the trailer:
