HBO’s upcoming horse-racing drama pilot, “Luck,” found its lead actor, and he’s a double Oscar winner who hasn’t done television in four decades, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Dustin Hoffman, who won acting Oscars for "Rain Man" and "Kramer vs. Kramer," will play a man recently released from prison who comes up with a gambling plot at the racing track. David Milch is writing and Michael Mann is directing; Dennis Farina and John Ortiz previously joined the cast.
