Showtime said Spade will play Harris DeSoto, “star of the fictional drama Dead Sex, a must-see favorite of the roadies,” while Arquette will portray “a smug and intimidating, iconic rock photographer who battles with Shelli [played by Carla Gugino] over her unusual concepts.”
Mellencamp will play himself, “giving some much-needed wisdom to Wes [played by Machine Gun Kelly] and Winston [played by Ethan Michael Mora.]”
Co-starring Luke Wilson, Rafe Spall and Imogen Poots, Roadies was created, written and executive produced by Oscar-winning filmmaker Cameron Crowe. Its first season finale will air on Aug. 28.
