Variety reports that Richard Kind is going to appear as a jockey's agent in HBO's David Milch (Deadwood) horse racing show Luck.

In addition to this Ian Hart is going to play a big mouth who comes into some cash and then bankrolls a series of Pick Six bets.

Dustin Hoffman has already been cast as the lead in the show, which follows "a group that lives vicariously through the goings-on at the racetrack." Dennis Farina, Nick Nolte and John Ortiz also co-star in this show.

Michael Mann is directing the pilot as well as executive producing. It will shoot in 2010 and then air in 2011.
