There are two enticing aspects of the new HBO series “Vinyl” that haven’t been getting a lot of attention yet (and no, we’re not talking about Olivia Wilde). The series from Martin Scorsese and Terence Winter co-stars Juno Temple and executive producer Mick Jagger’s son, James Jagger.
Both young thespians get their time to shine in the above trailer, and both have piqued our curiosity.
Temple has been one to watch for some time now, stealing scenes in everything from “Killer Joe” to “Black Mass” and begging — with her raw talent alone — to get a proper platform from which to unleash it. Jagger, though, is a fresh face. He popped up in a handful of little-known movies between 2009-2011, but hasn’t been seen since. Now he’s playing a rock and roll star many will undoubtedly compare to his father, and he’s doing it on a high-profile HBO drama. Temple has earned her big expectations, while Jagger will have to live up to those assigned to him.
Of course, he’s certainly dealt with lofty goals before as the son of one of rock and roll’s most famous frontmen. We’ll find out if life with a Rolling Stone prepared him for TV when “Vinyl” premieres February 14.
