Dennis Hopper on "Crash"

Dennis Hopper Makes 'Crash' Series Landing
Starz series also stars Clare Carey, Luis Chavez, Ross McCall, Jocko Sims, Brian Tee and Arlene Tur

Dennis Hopper has joined the cast of "Crash," the Starz television adaptation of the Oscar-winning film.

Starz says that Hopper will play a veteran, maverick music producer looking for his last big score.

The two-time Oscar nominee (for acting in "Hoosiers" and co-writing "Easy Rider") joins the previously announced Clare Carey, Luis Chavez, Ross McCall, Jocko Sims, Brian Tee and Arlene Tur in the small screen version of Paul Haggis' film.

While all of the characters in the future are original creations, the new "Crash" will have a similar structure to the feature: A multi-ethnic ensemble of Los Angeles characters will deal with the harsh realities of everyday life, mostly that people in LA can't drive and are frequently racist.

Production has begun on the pilot with Sanford Bookstaver directing. Since the show aims to give a realistic depiction of Los Angeles, filming will take place largely in New Mexico.

Starz plans to premiere the new "Crash" in October.

Hopper's last regular TV gig was on NBC's short-lived "E-Ring." The actor's latest feature, "Palermo Shooting," premiered to largely negative reviews at the Cannes Film Festival. He'll also be seen in the upcoming comedy "Swing Vote."
