It has been reported that top Hollywood director Michael Mann and Emmy Award-winning producer David Milch have retained a couple of fairly well-known actors to play roles in their pilot horse racing drama, 'Luck.'

According to a report by Reuters, the pair have retained Dennis Farina and John Ortiz.

Farina, an ex-policeman, has a number of roles in mainstream Hollywood films under his belt -- Midnight Run, Get Shorty and Manhunter, to name a few.

Ortiz made his film debut in Carlito's Way before appearing in Narc and Miami Vice, among other films.

"The pilot is about a bunch of intersecting lives in the world of horse racing," Milch previously told Daily Variety. "It's a subject which has engaged and some might say has compelled me for 50 years. I've joked that if I just can make $25 million on this show, I'll be even on research expenses. I find it as complicated and engaging a special world as any I've ever encountered, not only in what happens in the clubhouse and the grandstand, but also on the backside of the track, where the training is done and where they house the horses."
