Thomas Jane Cast in HBO Pilot
U.S. film actor Thomas Jane has been cast in an hourlong pilot for Hung, a dark comedy directed by Sideways writer-director Alexander Payne.
The Hollywood Reporter said Jane will play a middle-age high school basketball coach in Hung, which was written by Colette Burson and The Riches creator Dmitry Lipkin. Payne is also executive producer for the pilot.
If it gets picked up, it would mark Jane's first starring role on a television series. Best known for his roles in The Mist and The Punisher, Jane is married to Medium star Patricia Arquette.
