Mick Jagger caught the sunset Thursday evening at a waterfront mansion in Sands Point where a new untitled show about the music industry in the 1970s is being filmed for HBO. Jagger is the executive producer, and Martin Scorsese, who was also on the set, is directing. The show, an hourlong pilot, has not yet gotten approval to go to series from the pay-cable channel.
Though Jagger was likely the only actual music legend on hand, he wasn't dressed like the rest. Jagger was wearing a crisp, lavender man-tailored shirt topped by a smart jacket in gray-green and slim, pale pants. The others, a cast of about 100, were in costume, underscoring the show's era and going all-out retro in everything from wide bell-bottoms to high platform shoes to vintage maxi dresses.
The show's star, Olivia Wilde, wore one of these -- a pale blue, bell-sleeved number emblazoned with giant flowers. Ray Romano, also in the cast, worked a caramel-colored leisure suit with a geometric print shirt and lots of facial hair. P.J. Byrne, the actor who played Nicky "Rugrat" Koskoff in "The Wolf of Wall Street," strutted in a head-to-toe denim ensemble and chunky turquoise accessories, along with some fairly substantial muttonchops.
Hair was a focus on this set and included giant Afros and guy 'dos that were superlong and unkempt (think David Crosby). Jagger, however, was perfectly coifed in his signature pageboy. Classic.
