Paul Iacono to star in 'Hard Times'

MTV comedy pilot was written by Seth Grahame-Smith

Paul Iacono has landed the lead on the MTV comedy pilot "Hard Times."

The project, written by Seth Grahame-Smith and produced/directed by David Katzenberg (son of Jeffrey), is about a well-endowed high school geek (Iacono) whose social status is greatly improved after accidentally exposing himself at a basketball game.

Iacono, next seen in "Fame," is repped by Abrams Artists and attorney Isaac Dunham.
