The Wrap TV reports that Paul Giamatti, the Sideways actor, has signed on to star in the drama pilot "Hoke" on FX. Giamatti will play Hoke Moseley, a "hard-boiled and possibly insane" homicide detective in pre-chic Miami, circa 1985.
Billed as a "darkly comedic drama," the pilot is billed on Charles
Willeford's series of novels, which includes "Sideswipe," "New Hope for
the Dead" and "The Way We Die Now." Production is slated to begin later
this year in Miami.
