One of the biggest coups in TV this year comes from HBO that nabbed actor Dustin Hoffman to star in LUCK, the gambling drama created by David Milch and directed by Michael Mann.

At HBO’s TCA session for the series which debuts January 29, Hoffman admitted he didn’t know what to expect joining a TV show for the first time.

“I was expecting [to shoot] 20 pages a day,” says Hoffman. “I was expecting an atmosphere that, you know, was like making movies on cocaine or something, but it’s the opposite. We did the best we could with as much time that we had and we came back the next day. Michael hired all film directors. Not to disparage TV directors, but to me, there was no difference from making a movie except that he did it digitally and we had three cameras, which actors love because you don’t have to repeat in coverage.”
