Kevin Bacon to Star in Transparent Creator's Amazon Pilot I Love Dick

Kevin Bacon has found his next TV role, and Ryan Hardy it is not.

The Following vet will fill the title role in I Love Dick, Amazon’s comedy pilot from Transparent creator Jill Soloway, Deadline reports.

Based on Chris Kraus’ 1997 novel of the same name, the potential series follows a struggling married couple in Texas and their mutual obsession with an off-putting but charismatic professor (played by Bacon).

Through that fixation, failing wife and independent filmmaker Chris (Transparent‘s Kathryn Hahn) goes on a journey of self-discovery and eventually transformative power. The role of Sylvere, Chris’ husband, has yet to be cast.

In addition to his three seasons on Fox’s now-defunct The Following, Bacon is in talks to reprise his role as Valentine McKee in a potential TV-series adaptation of the 1990 cult film Tremors.

    Sounds a bit boring but always like Kevin Bacon and Kathryn Hahn. Wonder if this means the Tremors TV series Kevin Bacon was working on is not going forward at this time, which would be a bummer.

  2. What happened the the Tremors TV show he was working on
