Pushing Daisies‘ Lee Pace and ex-Law & Order ADA Linus Roache have joined HBO’s drama pilot Miraculous Year. Stark Sands (Generation Kill) has also been cast in a supporting role. Oscar winner Kathryn Bigelow has signed on to direct the pilot, which is described as an examination of a New York family as seen through the eyes of a charismatic, self-destructive Broadway composer (played by Tony winner Eddie Redmayne). Hope Davis, Frank Langella, and Patti LuPone round out the cast.
