Showtime’s upcoming comedy series Dice has just cast Oscar winner Adrien Brody (The Pianist) and Lorraine Bracco (The Sopranos) in guest starring roles. The network says Brody will be seen in one episode playing himself while Bracco’s confirmed for two episodes and will be playing a Vegas overlord who owns Dice’s gambling debts.
Kevin Corrigan has also joined the cast as a series regular playing Milkshake, best friend of Dice (played by Andrew Dice Clay).
Filming’s currently underway on season one of the half-hour comedy which is based on “semi-true” experiences of Andrew Dice Clay. Showtime’s aiming for a 2016 premiere.
Dice was created by Scot Armstrong (Old School) and is executive produced by Armstrong, Andrew Dice Clay, Sean Furst, Bryan Furst, and Bruce Rubenstein.
The Plot: “Dice chronicles the semi-true stories of Andrew Dice Clay, whose unique brand of humor often gets him in trouble. Once on top, the comedian now must work to resurrect his career, pay his gambling debts, manage his sons’ rock band, fend off old fans and keep his family afloat.”
