First Elton John, now Mick Jagger.
The Rolling Stones frontman is talking with ABC about appearing in a comedy pilot, in which he'd be the target of a group of ragtag thieves. If the deal goes through, Jagger would be on tap to make recurring appearances on the show, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
He would also be the second rock star with a project in development at ABC this spring. John is executive producing the comedy "Him and Us," about an aging rock icon (Anthony Stewart Head, "Buffy the Vampire Slayer") and his entourage.
The Jagger pilot, from "Ed" creators Jon Beckerman and Rob Burnett, stars Donal Logue ("Grounded for Life") as a New York City janitor who's frustrated with his life. He hatches a plan to rob Jagger and recruits some of his friends to help plot the job.
Burnett and Beckerman originally sold their script under the title "I Want to Rob Jeff Goldblum," though Goldblum was never officially attached to the project. He's starring in his own pilot, an NBC drama called "Raines."
Jagger's name likely won't be in the title of the show, and he won't appear in many scenes, the Reporter says. He would, however, be the primary focus of Logue's would-be Ocean's Eleven.
The cast of the pilot also includes Kevin Michael Richardson ("Like Family"), Sofia Vergara ("Hot Properties") and Maz Jobrani ("Life on a Stick").
