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

Kevin Bacon Amazon

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.
