Kevin Bacon Set to Star in Amazon Comedy Pilot ‘I Love Dick’


Kevin Bacon is set to star in Amazon comedy pilot “I Love Dick.”


The Following’ vet will fill the title role in I Love Dick, Amazon’s comedy pilot from Transparent creator Jill Soloway. 

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.
