The cast continues to grow for the rock and roll drama Mick Jagger is developing with Martin Scorsese for HBO. 

"The Hollywood Reporter" says actress Juno Temple has signed on for the untitled project, which takes viewers into the less-than-wholesome music scene in New York in the 1970s. 

The story is told from the perspective of a record label owner, played by Bobby Cannavale, who's hit with a personal bombshell as he's trying to revive his business.  Temple will portray his assistant, who has an agenda of her own, while actress Olivia Wilde has the role of his wife. 

Jagger came up with the original concept, which he's been trying to get off the ground for the past several years.  He initially wanted to develop the idea into a film, and approached Disney and Paramount with no success. 

Jagger is also working on the HBO pilot with "Boardwalk Empire" screenwriter and producer Terence Winter and "Breaking Bad" producer George Mastras, who'll write the script and serve as executive producers.  Production is expected to begin this summer.
