Dustin Hoffman will star in “Luck,” an HBO program scripted by David Milch and executive produced by Michael Mann that centers on eccentric gamblers who work the horse-racing circuit.

According to Variety, Hoffman will portray “a man in his late 60s just released from four years in prison who’s autodidactic, intelligent, and deeply involved in gambling.”

Dennis Farina and John Ortiz already have been cast for supporting roles. Milch previously exec produced “Deadwood” and “John From Cincinnati” for the cable network. “Luck” is set to go into production this month. HBO reportedly is aiming for a January launch.
